Return to the beach in these vintage images and stories!
Based on the acclaimed documentary Biloxi Memories and the Broadwater Beach Hotel, produced and written by Barbara Sillery, this illustrated celebration of the community on the Mississippi Gulf Coast looks at its history from the first inhabitants until today. Biloxi continues to draw visitors from the Midwest, South, and abroad to see its many landmarks, including the resilient Biloxi Lighthouse. Sillery has captured the memories of generations who visited the shores through vintage postcards, photographs, and memorabilia. From the famous visitors and residents including Elvis, Jayne Mansfield, and Jefferson Davis to the curious characters like the “Mad Potter,” Sillery celebrates them all.
