The city of Biloxi is rich in history spanning over 300 years. From its founding days as the first capital of the Louisiana Purchase to becoming “Seafood Capital of the World” and a world-class tourist destination in Hurricane Alley, many transitions have taken place. Every 30 or so years through the 20th century, Biloxi and the surrounding areas have experienced opportunities to start anew. This volume offers a look at the first eight decades of the last century through some of the postcard images from that time. All in all, Biloxi and the Mississippi Gulf Coast have kept an eye on the past while rebuilding and looking to the future.
