Providence, Rhode Island Skyline Panoramic Picture

SKU: PROV1
This aerial panoramic photograph of Providence was taken by James Blakeway. It shows downtown Providence nestled on the banks of Providence River, which flows into Narragansett Bay. Toward the left, moored at the mouth of the river, is a Cold War era Soviet Submarine (NATO designation – Juliett 484). This ship is one of only two of her class outside the Soviet Union. During the Cold War, she targeted East Coast cities like Washington, DC, and New York with nuclear cruise missiles. The two tallest buildings, centered in the photograph, are the Fleet Bank building on the left and the Fleet Boston building on the right. In the distance is the Rhode Island State Capitol with its domed roof.

Providence, RI Skyline Pictures

As the capital city of Rhode Island, Providence skyline pictures show the third largest city in New England. Providence is considered part of the larger Great Boston area, which is home to over 7.6 million residents. First settled during the early 1600s at the junction of the Providence River and Narragansett Bay, this small American city is marked with a rapidly growing population. While the city has been termed the "Beehive of Industry" and "Renaissance City" in the past, the "Creative Capital" has been marketing the great performing arts, theatre and music destinations within its borders, which are many buildings housed in Providence skyline pictures today.

The historical attractions of Providence skyline pictures are much of what draws tourists to visit this early American city. As a site of many significant events of the Revolutionary War, Providence's skyline rapidly grew during the 1700s and early 1800s because of its strategic position. From the 1970s onward, significant federal funding investing in growth developed Providence skyline pictures into the metropolis it is now.

One of the most fascinating features of Providence skyline pictures is the moored Soviet Submarine, Juliett 484. The Fleet Bank building and Fleet Boston building are easily noticed features of the Providence city skyline, as is the Rhode Island State Capitol's domed roof.

As one of the first industrialized cities in the U.S., Providence skyline pictures show a city whose development was influenced by the foundations of the American Colonies and the United States.
