Lowcountry History: 15 Historic Gullah Images We Love

We love seeing this image of the oyster shuckers. Seafood is such a huge part of the Gullah culture.

We love seeing the sweetgrass baskets being much. Such a rich part of the design style and history of the Gullah culture.

We love this image of a man making rice which is a staple product of Gullah cuisine.

These ladies and gentlemen look absolutely regal standing in front of the porch. They remind me of my grandmother and grandfather.

We adore this full color photo from Decoration Day celebrations in the lowcountry.

Nothing like spending time under a live oak tree in the lowcountry.

Fishing is a huge part of Gullah cuisine and commerce. This picture reminds me of my grandfather fishing on our family farm.

I love this image of a family gather in the live oaks and palm trees. Life is always better on a dirt road in my opinion, especially one in the Lowcountry.

Farming was and is still a big part of Gullah culture. Raising livestock was and is a way of sustaining financially and through food. I still have memories of my grandfather’s hog form whenever I visit my parents.

These schoolchildren are absolutely adorable in front of their classroom.

We love seeing these traditional outfits with the backdrop of the live oak trees.

Such a beautiful memory of a traditional baptism in the river.

Such a regal image of this beautiful woman with her various sweetgrass baskets.

Such a regal moment from decoration day. Love this image of Gullah culture and Lowcountry landscape.
