Description

View of Newport, Newport County, R.I., 1860 / drawn & published by J. P. Newell.

This panoramic print of Newport, Rhode Island was drawn and published by J. P. Newell around 1860. Newport’s brushes with pirates and slave traders, and its prosperous years in the whaling industry, left a rich history that interested vacationers of the 1860's. Massive mansions and ornate resorts began to be built around the port town at that time.

Newport’s location on Aquidneck Island offered beautiful scenery and ample boating sports, of which many attended. Newport could be reached by water ferry or the Old Colony Railroad in those days.

The illustration shows Newport skyline from Fort Wolcott, Goat Island, with boating activities in the foreground.
