Margaret's Cafe

After a nice day in New Bedford, we forded the Acushnet River to Fairhaven in hopes of running into friends. Fairhaven is a small town with extra-ordinary civic buildings due to the patron of the town, Henry Huttleston Rogers. Known as 'Hell Hound' Rogers on Wall Street, he was one of the last robber barons. He left wonderful buildings for Fairhaven, was friends with Mark Twain, Booker T Washington, Helen Keller and was nice to his dog as well, making up for his ruthlessness as a biz man.
We did find our friends, and were treated to a swimmingly seafood dinner at Margaret's. This sketch was done a bit more carefully than most, and done as a thank-you card.
