Lovecraft was excited to be around watching the shows and pageantry.
The map was "a historical dn highway map of Rhode Island issued by the Department of Public Works Division of Roads and Bridges as part of the Rhode Island Tercentenary (1636 - 1936). It folds up to 4 by 9 1/2 inches and folds out to 19 by 32 inches.
