This and that|Muralist seeking Glass Kitchen photo

Published 12:00 am Sunday, February 8, 2009

After a weeks-long search, muralists preparing a new panel at City Front have turned to the public to seek an exterior photo of the Glass Kitchen restaurant that was at South and Walnut streets.

Specifically, Robert Dafford is seeking a picture showing the exterior sign as it would have appeared in the 1960s. The restaurant will be in the background of a mural centered on the Jitney-Jungle store at South and Monroe streets.

Anyone with such a photo or snapshot willing to lend it to the artist may contact Charlie Mitchell at The Vicksburg Post, 1601 N. Frontage Road.
