There was a time when you had to 'fight' railroad tracks and cobblestones along Commercial Street, weaving, sliding, bumping. Those days are long gone for the most part around the city, except for Boothby Square. These days beer trucks, laundry vendors, food distributors and their ilk are what you attempt to maneuver around. They get to park in the the center of the wide thoroughfare. Here's my query this morning: with all the great Portland microbrews around, what's this NY State beer truck doing 'obstructing' the middle of Commercial? Just 'the way of the world', I guess.
