THE NEWPORT POSTCARD MUSEUM
19.This card is postmarked Oct. 19, 1911. From Thomas Bradbury of 73 Van Zant Ave, (Newport) to an A.P. Brooks on River Road, New Bedford (Mass). The title is: 'Naval Apprentices on Parade at Newport, R.I.' The red colonial house in the center of the photo is the Wanton-Lyman Hazard House (now owned by the Newport Historical Society and open to the public for tours) and is on the corner of Broadway ( this being Broadway) and Stone Street. This house is one of the few late 17th century homes in Newport still standing today. The Sailors would be marching into Washington Square and would pass the Colony House on their left. The building behind the tree in the upper left of the photo with the red first floor and the white upper floors was the Weaver Mercantile Emporium. It is still standing (as are most of the buildings in this shot) and is the home of New Visions a low income resource center for Newport County. If you were to continue past the Weaver building on the right in the next block is the Newport City Hall Newport City Hall, the formerTownsend Industrial Schooland the former Rogers High School.
