Iconic Yoken's whale sign restored and relit

PORTSMOUTH - An iconic landmark and piece of history stands tall yet again on Lafayette Road - the Yoken's whale sign.

For five decades, an enormous whale sign became part of the identity of Yoken's restaurant on Route 1.

The restaurant closed but the Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank joined forced with the Four Amigos to save the sign after giving it a facelift.

Friday night, it lit up once again with a crowd of onlookers to celebrate the occasion.
