THE NEWPORT POSTCARD GALLERY
APC 65."By-The-Sea" Residence of Hon. Perry Belmont, Bellevue Avenue. ". . . Mrs. Belmont had elegant French manners, beautiful jewels and was a pioneer resorter. When she deserted her beautiful country seat a the once fashionable Staten Island and built "Bythesea" at Newport, the event marked the beginning of a new era. All old-time Newporters today still recall stories of the sensation created by Mrs. Belmont's famous demi-daumont. A Paris importation, the carriage was drawn by four horses with no driver but with two hear horses ridden by postilions in short jackets, tight breeches and smart jockey caps." * From "The Last Resort" by Cleveland Amory.
