I have no idea who the person is in this next picture, but I think he/she certainly deserves a little recogniztion. That was very hard work. I assume the location is south of Sugar Land somewhere along Brooks St., but I can't be sure.
Here's a photo of the old Sugar Land gin which stood on the west side of town between Nalco & Ulrich St.
Here's the finished product.
