Oyster camps at Bayou Bruleau

Another stop on the route to Grand Isle. Bayou Bruleau was one of several "platforms" (see photographs #8 & 9) in Barataria Bay near Grand Isle. In the 1940s, it was the closest platform to the island and had daily mail service. In 1906, when this trip was made, the settlement was apparently used by oyster fishermen.
