Abstract

Helen Richards describes how she and her husband, Robert, came to own the Seabreeze Restaurant in Tampa. The interview begins with an account of Mrs. Richards's childhood in Tampa during the 1930s and 1940s. She explains how she met her husband, who was a fisherman, and describes their first business selling fish at a bait shop next door to the Seabreeze. The interview continues with a discussion of how Mr. and Mrs. Richards bought the restaurant and started to run it. Mrs. Richards also recounts some of her business's legal issues with Tampa Port Authority , which concludes the interview.
