Oct 1974 Obits and Zion Church and Fillmore School Photos

Bridgeport Business News October 1974
P and B Restaurant Opens. Bill and Phyllis Shoulders have been busy serving sandwiches, french fries and onion rings, salads, and plate lunches. Paneled inside, the restaurant, located in what used to Bea’s Place, has 875 sq ft. of dining area in addition to 288 sq. ft. of kitchen area. The Shoulders have utilized a former grocery store not in use in recent years, to obtain the added space. The grocery store and B's place were located in the same building at 746 Judy Ave. The Shoulders closed the restaurant south of the B&O tracks on Main Street early this summer after purchasing this place. Bill did most of the remodeling work himself. Kathleen Creek is the cook while Virginia Kissen also helps out in the kitchen. Julie Murray, a junior at Red Hill, works in the evening. Also helping out are the Shoulders’ daughters Vicki and Debbie. Phyllis is well experienced in restaurant work and greets customers as they come in the door. Bill has plans to remodel the exterior of the restaurant sometime in the future. He is not definite when that work will begin. Judging from the amount of business since Friday, the Shoulders are extremely optimistic about the future.
