This is a real photo postcard of Mariner’s Mile circa 1941. On the bottom left you can see the Arches restaurant which opened in 1926 and PCH running south under the classic arched bridge. This postcard intrigues me so much due to the lack of development depicted. Definitely before Newport’s boom with very few homes on Lido Isle, no homes on the hills overlooking the bay and very few buildings on Mariner’s Mile itself.
