Text accompanying photo:
"This Mission Church was an iron building and was situated at the lower part of Dock Street. The portion of ground on which it stood was required by the G.W.R. for the building of a new bridge and as there was no suitable place in the Parish to which the Church could be removed it was sold to the Vicar of Maindee, the Reverend T. D. Griffiths. It was taken to an open space in Church Road and became the first Church of St. Matthew. On the erection of a stone Church it was removed to Durham Road and opened on December 3rd, 1891, under the name of St. Julian. On the creation of the Parish of St. Julian it served as the Parish Church until September 23nd, 1926, when a stone Church was built."
