A Postcard Video of Newport, RI In 2010

The more things stay the same, the more they actually change.

After discovering this video, we’re struck by how, to the untrained eye, Newport, especially the waterfront, doesn’t change. The boats on the water and buildings on the wharfs are pretty much a constant.

However, to the people who live and work in those spots, things can change a lot. Moorings may rarely┬áchange hands, but the boats anchored at them do. Likewise, the building housing the Aquidneck Lobster Company on Bowen’s Wharf is quite a bit different today, as it’s home to The Lobster Bar, a slightly different kind of operation.
