Item # RI 12. Titled: "A Guide and Map of Newport" By all rights, this pamphlet should not be in as good conditions as it is: there is a folt out map (16" x 26" )that looks like it has never been unfolded. Stapled outer paper front and back cover. Published by Gabriel Weis - 124 Bellevue Avenue and 489 Fifth Avenue (NY). Information (for 1916) lists Boats and Trains, Theatres, Points of Interest; 19 pages of history; 1 page for church listings, and 4 pages of "Lists of Cottages" and then the fold out map. A good resource item in usable condition; the map show the electric trolly lines in Newport at that time. The Cottage listing also lists the owner of the cottage. A hard Newport item to come by. . . Price: $100.00.
City of Newport, R.I. with principal Points of Interest. Published by Howard G. Ward 202 Thames Street, Newport, R.I. Copyright 1916 Howard G. Ward.
