1950’s Stafford Springs Promotional Flyer

 

 

 

Notes of interest: This flyer includes a photo of Walkaway Springs, a.k.a. Lake Waukaway. (Note the difference in spelling) Also included is a photo of the restaurant interior. It’s not clear if this was taken inside the Hotel of the newer Motor Lodge Café. Note that the black waitress is wearing an “Aunt Jemima” scarf cap, floor length dress, and apron. It’s my understanding that this was the standard uniform worn by all of the waitresses.  The Choctaw name for the spring is also spelled different from other the other research sources that I’ve found: Bokhuma verses Bogohama. Both allegedly translate into, waters of life. Anyone out there speak Choctaw? Which one is correct?

Old book of promotional matches

These pages are a work in progress. While every attempt has been made to include accurate historical information, some error may be included. I invite corrections, additional information, additional photographs, and accounts of personal experience. Please contact me at the supplied address. Very little has been documented in regards to the dying towns and landmarks of east-central Mississippi. With your help, I hope to put together a few pages that we all can pass along to our grandchildren. Thanks!
