The Green Book: Delmarva

Watching a PBS program prompted me to take a look at The Green Book and to find the listings shown for Delmarva.  You can find the 1949 edition on the internet, the publication then called “The Negro Motorist Green Book,” a series of publications produced beginning in 1936, ending in 1964, created by Victor Hugo Green (1892-1960).  In this 1949 edition there was no listing for the Virginia Eastern Shore but had the following illustrated listings.  Who can tell us about the Victory restaurant in Princess Anne, Maryland; or the M.L. Parker Tourist Home in Salisbury; or Joe Randolph’s restaurant in Laurel, Delaware; or Rodney’s hotel in Townsend, Delaware; or the Randall, Anderson, and Lawson hotels in Wilmington?
