Legend Tripping with Lovecraft: Poe's Grave

Poe's grave circa 1930's.

"I've just been to the grave of Edgar Allan Poe, in Westminster Presbyterian Churchyard. It is at once a melancholy & inspiring spot - I feel like writing a verse about it!" [1]

Lovecraft concludes, "Am nearly broke, but have saved a side my fare home."

Letters of H P Lovecraft and Donald Wandrei, p. 223 {postmarked postcard of 12 July 1928 from Baltimore, Maryland}

c.1937 scene of a postcard very similar to the one on which HPL wrote this note. It is of Mansion House, Druid Park, Baltimore, Md.
