  3. That’s a radio tower, I believe. Possibly shortwave to communicate with boats and ships?

  5. Thank you for comments about WLOX TV and radio studios in the Buena Vista Hotel. I have been trying for years to remember which hotel the studios were in. I was stationed at Keesler AFB in the late 60’s and worked at WLOX as a part time announcer, until my discharge in December of 1968. I still am horrified to read about Hurricane Camile, 8 months after I left the beautiful Biloxi, Mississippi area.

  8. My memories of the Buena Vista date back to 1950 when I was taking my radar operator training at Keesler and a few visits to the hotel and the restaurant that was located at the top of the hotel and was built like a ship and gave a great view of the Gulf. We used to use the restroom to change into our bathing suits to take a dip in the water and the beautiful beach was a great sight to see!
