Newport Quay ( Day 9 )











This is the old Mews Brewery which for a long time supplied the Island with its beer, it closed about 50yrs ago and after laying derelict for many years was then turned into town houses as you can see from the image, the second picture is from a painting in 1813 and you can clearly see these buildings at the head of the river. : A painting of Newport harbour and quay by J. King in 1813.

Once again, your images cease to amaze me. HOw about you aim for some "slums" next week and show us the ugly of where you live. You are making me jeleous and envious with every post.

LOL, Diana I have not even started on the places that I call beautiful, these have just been places that I have gone past whilst at work, Saturday if the weather is right I will take one of my fav landscapes for you, it needs to be sunny though.
