Part of the Newport County, Rhode Island, USGenWeb Project

All these original postcards were printed before or during World War I. These were not mailed. Some state, "Passed by censor, Washington, D. C." A "Cantonment" is, in this case, a temporary camp.
All the images are copyrighted by Susan White Pieroth, 2002, and are provided for individual use only. They are not to be posted on other web sites, or published in any form without specific permission.
