THE NEWPORT POSTCARD GALLERY
11.Titled: 'Old Liberty Tree, Newport, R.I.' Not postmarked but probably from around 1905-10. The 'Liberty Tree' is a replacement for a much older tree that died. This is at the enter-section of Thames and Farewell. This view has not changed much today: now there are too many power lines and telephone lines and of course automobiles line the right side of the street. Most of the homes on this street have survived since the publishing of this card. About three short blocks up is the Parade and Washington Square. The home of William Ellery, signer of The Declaration of Independence was located close by until around 1920 when it was demolished.
