Opelousas?

Some photographs raise more questions than answers.

  3. Opelousas? Looks to me that is a sign referring to S. R. Landry Bank in Opelousas, Louisiana. Not much of a mystery. It's located just a few miles above Lafayette, Louisiana. Love the pic, by the way, what is that guy doing out there, reading up against a fence? Priceless.

    Looking forward to reading your posts.

  4. Oops, not SR Landry, it's St. Landry. Sorry about that.

  5. Thank you for all the comments!

    The strange thing about this picture, at least to my family, is that none of my ancestors were born outside of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio and none of them died anywhere near Louisiana. It is interesting to know one might have visited somewhere so far away from where they originated from. I wish I knew what he was doing and why. It's all apart of the thousands of questions I have.
