Newport in Vintage Postcards
Author: Robert Yoder
Newport’s recent revitalization gives citizens all the more reason to remember the city’s storied past. Before Newport boomed with tourism, it was dubbed “the Sin City of the South,” infamous for its abundant casinos and nightclubs. Prior to that, though, Newport thrived as a street car suburb and an industrial hub, relying on the Ohio River for transportation. Along with its neighbor, the Queen City of Cincinnati, Newport blossomed into the vibrant community that it is today. The vintage postcards in this volume depict the fascinating legacy left by Newport’s people and places.
