Newport Looking North-West

Photo reference number: 72

Looking up Commercial Street towards its junction with High Street on the right and Bridge Street and Stow Hill on the left. The building in the mid-distance is that of one of the principal banks, and here is the chief town centre. In the background is St. Mark's Church; the building on the left, resembling a Greek temple, is the Lyceum Theatre; and the barracks can be seen on the right centre on the crest of the hill.
