Pierre Savoie & Faulk Bros.Eva Newell was not sure of the identities of the men in this picture or who the photographer was, but does know that it was taken at the Faulk (cousins of hers) camp in the Grand Lake area. This photo, taken sometime before 1950, was handed down to Newell by her mother and was one of two photos the Faulks had made into postcards. We now know the identities of the men. From left: Pierre Savoie, Nap Faulk, T-Will Faulk, and Kenny Faulk.
Raymond Blanchard Dan Leboeuf Tan LaboveDan Lebouef, center, Newell's step-father, once supplied Arsene Pujo with green feathers from a mallard so that Pujo could send them to a relative in New York who wanted a hat trimmed in the feathers. Newell does not know who the other men in the picture are.
Snipe at Pellerin Home Belle CityThis picture, taken some time between 1920-1930, was shot in front of the Pellerin home in Bell City. Eva Newell's aunt, Lodie Pellerin, was married to one of the Pellerin's from that area.

Two Hunters Calcasieu ParishEva Newell said that one of the men in this photo, taken between 1920-1930, is probably a Faulk related to Amos and Nap Faulk, brothers and famous hunters and duck callers from the Grand Lake area. The picture was likely taken in the Bell City area, where some of Newell's uncles were rice farmers.
Odelon Duhon and MallardsThe young boy in this picture is Odelon Duhon, a cousin of Eva Newell. The Duhon's were one of the first families to settle the Grand Lake and Sweet Lake areas.
Hunters on HouseboatRaymond Blanchard, left, Tan Labove, and Dan LeBouef, Eva Newell's stepfather, were all guides at Ed Taussig's hunting camp in Sweet Lake. LeBouef was also a guide at the Coastal Club.
Ed Taussig and Glenn Hebert at GibbstownThe man on the left is possibly Ed Taussig, Charlie Hebert, possibly an employee at Taussig's vehicle dealership, and Glen Hebert, Charlie's son. They had been hunting at Charlie's camp near the Gibbstown Bridge.
Hunter With MallardsThis photo was probably one of the Faulks, possibly taken near Big Pasture Road and probably taken between 1920-1930. It is unknown who the photographer was.
