The Sugar Plantation


One of those classic images in our opinion. We hope that you will agree. “The Sugar Plantation“; Florida/Louisiana/Texas c.1915. In our research we eliminated Puerto Rico and Hawaii as possible venues. That leaves Florida, Louisiana and Texas as the other possibilities. As Florida is the leading sugar producing state in the nation the odds favor Florida. Taking a break under the hot sun. If you look closely you can see the cane knife protruding from the ground behind the little boy. A cut off cane stalk is in the foreground. Just some clues that you pick up in the field.
