Sunday Dinner at the Busy Bee

Another restaurant that ended after a couple of years.  This time due to a fire in 1927.  The restaurant was run by Ralph Raymond Gordy (1900-1972) who originally was from Snow Hill.  Located on what today is Market street as the ad says it was originally The White House restaurant.  The Busy Bee started in 1926.  After the restaurant went out of business, Mr Gordy moved on to running the Five Point Service Station and then later after his second marriage into insurance.  The building the Busy Bee was in later became Langrall's furniture store.  In the 1930s another restaurant on East Church Street would pick up the name Busy Bee but I don't think the two restaurants had a connection.
