Newport Mon From The Air

Photo reference number: 1224

Postcard view, Airco Aerials Ltd, The Hyde, Hendon, NE9

Notice the temporary bridge is in place while the old stone bridge (built 1801) is demolished and the 'new' bridge is built. The new bridge was opened in 1927 so the view is probably 1925/1926.

The message on the postcard is dated 16 July 1945 and the writer includes this in the message: "... it's like looking for gold to find views, in the end I found two."
