Oyster shucking knife maker Loys Cain

Date
1986-10-14
Description
One contact sheet with thirty-six images. Images of Loys in his shop making an oyster shucking knife. Shucking is the removal of oysters from their shell. For more of Cain, see S 1577, v. 46. Between 1986 and 1987, a partnership between the Florida Folklife Program and the American Folk Center created the Maritime Heritage Survey Project. Focusing on the Gulf and Atlantic fishing cultures, and utilizing photographs, slides, oral histories, and on-site interviews, the survey climaxed with a demonstration area at the 1987 Florida Folk Festival. The three main researchers were Nancy Nusz, Merri Belland, and project director David Taylor. Additional information on the project can be found in Taylor's project files in S 1716.
