Louisiana Exhibit and Museum Day 2

You can't beat the price - In the background is the rear entrance.  I go this way from the camping area.

Gulf fishing and shrimping are big industries in Louisiana.

 In 1872 during Reconstruction, all public offices were held by African Americans.  This is a picture of the Administrative and Legislative branches of Louisiana government in 1872.

Logging and paper making is big business in Louisiana

This is an early pulp mill used in making paper - In the old days, you could smell a paper mill for miles - YUK!

This is the kind of boat that was used to transport freight and people using the local rivers.

Louisiana is one of the leading producers of poultry.  These chickens may be headed to KFC.

Your sweet potatoes and pork may have come from around here.

There will be more exhibits from the museum in the next day or two but tomorrow, we'll be looking at some of the things going on at the rally.
