THE NEWPORT POSTCARD GALLERY
2.Our next card is the same view only a moment before or after the previous card. The photographer is also positioned more to the left. One would have to assume that it was the same photographer selling pictures to different post card companies. It is interesting that even from this point of view that the Colony House would not be in full view. The trees from the Square hide the right side of Colony House.On the back right side of the card is a dark Greek Revival facade: then a church and today the Jane Pickens Theater. The building in front of the large telegraph pole on the left is today the site of the Bank of Newport. I wonder who is the old gentleman with the long white beard (on the right). Title: ' Washington Square, Newport, R.I.' c. 1905. Printed by The Valentine & Sons' Publishing co., Ltd, New York / Printed in Great Britain. Let us take a look a some of the buildings surrounding the square in the next card.
