Stenger's wharf, ca. 1940

Contributed by Friendship Museum

This photograph shows people looking down at the water at low tide after having a shore dinner at the Lobster Pot restaurant.

What might have been a leisurely dining experience for patrons is remembered differently by a Friendship octogenarian who worked there as a waitress. When asked what it was like to work at the Lobster Pot, she gave a one-word response: "tense."
