The purpose of this project is to share images of Newport, North Newport, Croydon and Goshen, New Hampshire taken in 1921.

The Rev. David Lewis Yale came to Newport in 1918 during the influenza epidemic, and because there was only one other minister in town, he served the neighboring communities of Goshen and Croydon. Rev. Yale remained in Newport until 1923 and returned in 1937 with a valuable gift: the photographs he took while a resident.

At that time, he presented several showings of the photographic slides, and presented two wooden boxes of these glass lantern slides to the Richards Free Library.
