Lovecraft's Providence: Westminster Street

Complete with his beloved Trolley cars, this image from Chrispy's collection shows the hustle and bustle of circa 1905 Providence. Recently, Lovecraft's handwriting was noted as cramped and cribbed. This is a more typical cursive of the era from the back and front of this card. Howard would have just turned 15 on August 20, 1905.

I think if you click the image you will see an expanded size view in a new window. If things are not clear, let me know. I'll rescan so you can see even more detail.
