I have an original of this article, saved since I found it in my grandparent's attic years ago. Just love it.

Have you ever seen Nancy Sirkis' wonderful photo book from the early 60's, "Newport, Pleasures and Palaces"? Absolutely lovely pictures of all faces of Newport, including wonderful decay shots of since demolished mansions. If not, get your hands on a copy.
