John Cuevas Signs "Lost Gulfport"

Join author John Cuevas at the Launch Party for Lost Gulfport. Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served to attendees and friends of the author.  

The second largest city in the state, Gulfport is the business center of south Mississippi. Many of the city’s cherished landmarks and businesses have been lost to Hurricanes Camille and Katrina, the development of shopping malls and Interstate 10. Gulfport’s answer to the quintessential ’50s malt shop, Stone’s Ice Cream, became a favorite hangout for students, families and businessmen throughout its long history. The Paramount Theatre was famous for its annual Christmas raffle during the ’50s. Known as the “Hosts of the Gulf Coast,” the Friendship House Restaurant served up a great cup of coffee along with its celebrated Hospitality Menu. Historian John Cuevas takes a look back at Gulfport’s shops, restaurants, nightclubs, cinemas and more from a bygone age.
