Description

Views of Becky's Diner (also known as Becky's Restaurant), 390 Commercial Street (Hobson's Wharf). The photos were taken two days before the grand opening, which was on Wednesday 13 March 1991. The establishment created a debate in December 1990 on whether it conformed with City of Portland marine zoning laws.
