Description

The Bangor Rye Bread Bakery was the business of Reuben and Clara Cohen, parents of William S. Cohen, former United States Secretary of Defense (1997-2001), Senator (1979-1996) and Representative (1973-1978). Many of the buildings in this area along Hancock Street were torn down in the late 1970s as a part of an urban renewal movement. The steeple of St. John's Catholic Church, which still stands, appears in the background of the photograph.
