Pass Christian Omnibus
Voila! I titled this book “Pass Christian Omnibus” because it evolves from my book, “Pass Christian Discovered,” and moves forward and backward in time by pulling from additional information gathered through the years. Extracts of data were drawn from my many internet pages found at my www.PassChristian.Net website. In my use of sub-domains, I was able to store an additional multitude of facts, photographs and graphics that were previously never reviewed in my books.
In a number of instances I extracted pertinent data from my files that comprised the resource from other of my contributory books such as: “Trinity and Live Oak” – “St. Paul Jubilee” – “Pass Christian Historic District” – “Jazz in the Pass” – “Images of Pass Christian” – “Henderson’s Point” – “Lighthouses and Islands” – “Sails, Trails and Rails” – “The Great Gulf Coast” – “All About Camille” – and “Katrina - Survival and Revival.”
And not the least of – but by lifting from the many emails I have received through the years – from interested persons and friends and relatives of folks who lived in the Pass or who had parents or ancestors who did.
Every new catastrophe results in the further loss of vital data, for that reason these books that are written on Gulf Coast communities and the data stored on historical web sites must continue to be sustained.
Pass Christian has more than three hundred years of history. There have been conflagrations and hurricanes that cause changes to be remedied by newer constructions and replacements. The significance of Heritage is to keep as much of the old, yet to bow to the new. Evolution is a process and the blessings are upon those individuals who are challenged to redo and remake their new buildings and dwellings into a near resemblance of the old. In this way we get the best of the best.
