THE NEWPORT POSTCARD GALLERY
5.If you continue to the foot of the park and turn around, this view from about 1907 is just about what you will see today. In the center is a larger than life size statue of . . . as it is titled on the card: ' Newport, R.I. O.H. Perry's Monument, Washington Square,R.I.' This card which is dated: May 9, 07 is to Leila Temple Ellenwood of Bangor, Maine and the message is: 'Dear Cousin Leila . . . you want to come down to Rosies and get your kitten while he is grooming. . . I have got mine . . . she is the dearest little thing. Hattie Dyer. So . . . getting back to Commodore Perry: He was the hero of the Battle of Lake Erie. One further note: if you look at the far right front side of the card next to the fence you will see a stick of an ornamental tree that had just been planted, today the trees (one on each side) are quite large and are in excellent condition.
