Grand Isle Bus - 1934
Mostly a fishing community still today, Grand Isle was a favorite destination of Fonville. It was here that he documented many of its inhabitants with names like Kristicevich and Chighizola. Rumor has it that Jean Lafitte cruised Grand Isle's shores. This driver posed for Fonville with the only public school transportation on the island in 1934. One dominant figure on Grand Isle was Alfred Danziger, Huey Long's civil attorney. Danziger took a liking to Fonville and helped him set up a darkroom on the island.
