Laurence Duet- Owner of the Last Moss Gin in America

In this image, Turner Browne captures a moment in time as part of his documentary photography series of Cajun Louisiana. "Laurence Duet-Owner of the Last Moss Gin in America" is the title, but no date is given. Cajuns in Louisiana once collected Spanish moss to stuff beds and furniture, among other uses. In this photograph Browne shows a moss gin and its owner, Laurence Duet.
