Lovecraft's World

Here's an image of some school children from 1912. They're 8th graders. The image is said to have this inscription: "Lincoln School 8th grade 1912-13" The Lincoln School would have to be a grammar school in Lincoln, R.I., as The Lincoln School in Providence was and still is an all girls school.

As 22 year old Lovecraft walked through the streets of Providence, he would have crossed paths with children like these.
As familair as we are with Mr. Lovecraft, we have to recall that he walked the Earth about a century ago - a very different world.
