A Day in the Life of H P Lovecraft (31 August 1934)

[To Barlow] And what a place is Nantucket! Utterly marvellous {sic} - perhaps the most completely preserved bit of the elder world in America today. And to think I never saw it before ... wholde networks of cobblestoned streets with nothing but colonial houses on either side - narrow, garden-bordered lanes - antient belfries - picturessque waterfront - everything that the antiquarian could ask!


I added a few images from post cards of the 1920's and 1930's, slightly before the time that HPL saw Nantucket.
