Biloxi Bakery Circa 1930

Biloxi Bakery Circa 1930

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!

Biloxi Bakery Workers, 1913 - Biloxi, MS

The Biloxi Bakery workers of 1913 - the founder, Fred Klein Sr. is in the middle - arms folded. Famed for his New Orleans style french bread, he operated the bakery until his retirement in 1964. His three sons operated the bakery until 1973 when it was demolished to make way for an urban renewal project - that subsequently failed! No air conditioning, no overhead lighting (except for the gas mantle globed lamps), just lots of flour!

Known as the Velocipede, these bikes were used on the railroad for track inspectors and many other employees. This was a great great step grandfather inspecting the rails on the Pennsy in the late 30's. The original picture was printed backward but due to technology today I was able to investigate and flip it correctly.
