Family dinner taken that same day in 1924, in the home above the pharmacy, which belonged to my great-uncle and aunt, Stephen D. Stuart, Sr. and Sarah Elizabeth Pittman. This was a time exposure, so any movement caused a blur.

Milton and Mary Robicheaux, parents of Bannon Joseph Robicheaux, circa 1927.
