For What It’s Worth

You think that you have seen just about everything…then someone brings in a terrific copy of The Newport Bulletin, which was the official weekly publication of The Newport Casino dated August 25, 1930. You could say that this was published during the “worst of times”! The ads still reflected the lives of those “Avenue Swells” who could still afford the lifestyle few got to experience then. Today, its value would be between $100 and $150. — Federico Santi, partner, Drawing Room Antiques, 401-841-5060.
