Camp Livingston construction worker's shack and tents near Fort Beauregard. These are along the main highway on government property so they do not have to pay rent. Most of the people cook outdoors and haul water from a nearby church faucet. There are no sanitary facilities and most of them have brought here their own lumber for building their shacks, or made them out of old trucks. Alexandria, Louisiana
