THE NEWPORT POSTCARD GALLERY

9.Titled 'Washington Square, Newport, R.J.{sic} This view shows the lower end of 'The Parade' with the Brick market building at the right end (with the flag). The card is postmarked Denver,PA; Nov. 22, 1906. The trolly on the right is coming from Long Wharf (see next card). Newport (as did most cities at this point in time) had excellent mass transit systems. One could get on a trolly here and ride for several hundred miles, going from one trolly to the next. The corner of the Perry House ( the red and white stripped awnings) is just showing in the left of the card. In the center of the card is a water fountain with a gas standard used to illuminate the fountain at night.
