These are unusual stone gates found on the campus of Salve Regina University in Newport Rhode Island.

I think I have posted this one before...it has stairs going up each side and a seat on the very top.

The stone archway on this gate is only about 4 feet high...makes you wonder who the gate was for?

I knew I had seen that first shot before but I couldn't place it. Perhaps the gate in the second shot is for animals and not for people.

Great shots.

vsch1 - Very interesting shots. I like them.

I, also have some shots of Newport I was going to post later. I've never seen this gate at Salve Regina. Where is it at on campus? There are quite a few short gateways around there. There's another one on the cliff walk, I can't remember just where at right now, though.

Reminds me of an Oriental theme. I'm not sure but there are Chinese restaurants with these circular gates which imply "moon gates". Don't really know for sure.

Nice shot.
