Postcard - Huxtable Brothers. Postmarked May 1908.

If the paddle steamer doesn't look quite right that's because it isn't! It has been superimposed - trick photography is not a new idea. See also the external link below (opens in a new window) to two pictures on the Caerleon Net website. These show the same shot of the steamer in front of Newport Castle and the Hanbury Arms Caerleon. To give the Newport Castle picture some credibility the bridge has been darkened out.
