THE NEWPORT POSTCARD GALLERY
20.Postmarked June 30, 1910. Titled: 'Naval Apprentices Parade, Newport, R.I.' Published by Dan. E. Sullivan. I think that Mr. Sullivan was a local resident. Addressed to: Mr. A. Shorney / Herons Ghyll / Ukcfield / Sussex / England. The troops are marching past Newport City Hall on Broadway: City Hall would be on the right and Bull Street is to the immediate right of the picture. The Paramount Block is on the left. The parade probably started on Thames Street, came into "The Parade" and continued up Broadway onto Equality Park. (Thanks to Mr. DelNero for this info)
IT IS A SMALL WORLD WHEN IT COMES TO THE INTERNET: I received an Email from a relative of Mr. A Shorney (England) to whom this card was sent by his son, a Mr. Charles Shorney. Here is his Email message to me: "I am interested in postcard #20 shown on . . . , not the picture but the reverse. It is addressed to a Mr A Shorney. Austin Shorney was a distant relative of mine and his son Charles was one of the unlucky passengers on the Titanic. I am trying to discover more about the history of this family and would like to know if there is anything in the message on the reverse which would be of relevance. Lesley Morgan " Charles was in service to one of the wealthy Newport families and died " in service." When we find out the family Mr. Shorney works for, I will list the name. Mr. Morgan found this site thru a search engine that listed the name of "Shorney."
