Madisonville Video Photos - Part Three

  In 2010 Rusty Burns put together an extensive collection of old photographs depicting the Madisonville area, all to be scanned and placed in production of a video to be shown at the 2011 Madisonville Town Bicentennial Celebration. The video contained dozens of old photographs of the shipyards, the buildings and the people of Madisonville over the past 100 years. 

The Tammany Family blog is presenting those photographs in a three-part blog series. Here is part three, showcasing the people and places of early to mid-20th century Madisonville.
