Lovecraft's Description of Pawtuxett In Charles Dexter Ward

^Pawtuxett River c. 1910^
Obviosuly this is NOT wilderness

^Edgewood Yacht Club c. 1910^

"trim Edgewood" as Lovecraft describes it?

^Main Street Pawtuxett c. 1910^

Lovecraft says, "sleepy Pawtuxett spread out ahead"

One thinks Lovecraft's version of Pawtuxett and Edgewood as backwaters is a bit of an exageration. In 1927, they were probably nice bedroom communities and playgrounds for the Providence elite. The river had many boat and yacht clubs.
