New Cliffs Hotel and Cottages,
Newport, Rhode Island

Above is an old postcard showing the same hotel and a page from a view book. It was located at the beginning of Cliff Walk near Easton's Beach/First Beach. It was destroyed by fire June 8, 1908. The souvenir booklet below is not dated, but would be from 1906 or slightly earlier. The decor is wonderful. Click the images to enlarge.
