Pascagoula-Moss Point Bank

commercial building
Gulfport, MS
This Pascagoula-Moss Point Bank branch was designed by Perry C. Langston and built in 1961. Originally, there were vertical louvers on the windows that moved in response to the sun. The bank moved in 2013. Previously known as the P-MP Bank Building, it is now known as the Hancock Plaza Building and is used as office space. For more, see this website. [map]

This commercial building was built in 1973. I assume the gabled roof was added later. I don't know what the building housed originally but it has been used as a used car lot office since at least 2007. [map]

Sun-n-Sand Motel
Jackson, MS
The Sun-n-Sand Motel was built in 1960. It closed in 2001 and has been boarded up since then. In 2019, the property was sold to the state of Mississippi. There are plans to demolish the building and turn the property into a parking lot. The sign is supposedly staying. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

This is Kolb's Cleaners main location. They have nine others and at least this one is another mid-century design. This photo is from 2010. The sign letters were removed from the canopy by 2017. [map]
