THE NEWPORT POSTCARD MUSEUM
12.Back up past 'The Parade', this card is titled: 'Thames Street looking North, Newport, R.I.' Postmarked around 1908. Mrs. Hall writes: ' Dear Aunt Katie: Don't you think this is a quaint little street? This is in one of the old parts of Newport and where we do considerable shopping when we come up from the Jamestown Ferry . . . ' Newport's downtown was at the turn of the century very active with this area of Thames, the center. A two way street then, it is now one way. The buildings on the left were demolished in the 1970's (Urban Renewal) and replaced with modern looking stylized salt box like multi attached units. Notice the wonderful mix of Colonial (at one time private homes) and commercial buildings on this street.
