Vintage photos of:
Three delivery trucks in front of the Biloxi Bakery and Confectioneries. known by the locals as simply Klein's. For over sixty years it supplied the Biloxi - Gulfport - Ocean Springs areas with fresh baked goods. Fred Klein Sr., the founder, claims when he left New Orleans at the turn of the century, they forgot how to make REAL french bread ... He had backup for his claims as some of the deliveries were made to New Orleans! His bread was even flown to California and New York when visiting dignitaries from the local air base were in town!
