SS - Angelo's Place, Gulfport, Mississippi

Angelo's Place in Gulfport, Mississippi was owned and operated by Angelo Xidis, who was Greek. This is a 1940s view of the old Angelo's restaurant. This building was built of steel tile and glass and had live oak trees growing through the roof (photo here). This building was destroyed by Hurricane Camille in 1969. Angelo's restaurant was rebuilt and was there until 1985. There is now a Vrazel's Fine Food Restaurant at this site.

Spaghetti and meatballs, which are advertised on the sign out front, were a specialty. The sign on the roof, that proclaims in large letters "FOODS - WE FEED THE PEOPLE," is one of my favorites. This building was on U.S. 90 and faced the then "Sparkling Waters of the Gulf."
