Texas BBQ for Greek sovereigns

November 18, 1953

King Paul and Queen Frederika of Greece are visiting Houston, Texas.   According to the AP, the king and queen, "dressed in Western attire, ate a late lunch of barbecue and ranch style beans" after they greeted thousands of people who "stood in the rain to see them."

A "heavy rain" started just as King Paul and Queen Frederika left their hotel for a "downtown parade and office welcoming."
