Retroraunt: Rusty Scupper

Before it was a failed Will Smith hotel project and an eyesore of a hole in the ground, New Market was a glistening complex full of promise. One of the featured restaurants was the Rusty Scupper, a chain that in its heyday had 17 locations across the United States. The restaurant sat high above Front Street offering vistas of the Delaware River and in this 1975 photograph, an under construction I-95 and Penns Landing.
