Not Much Known: Free Crab Boil on Friday Night at Danos’ Nightclub in Louisiana, 1938

In September 1938, while traveling through Louisiana documenting sugar plantations, rice farmers, and oyster fishermen, photographer Russell Lee stopped off at Danos’ Nightclub, a roadhouse off Highway 1 in the tiny community of Raceland.

As it happened, he showed up on a Friday night, just in time for Danos’ free weekly crab boil.
