Lovecraft in 1925's Solar Eclipse (with Video) !

In 1925 (when I was in New York) some of us tramped up into the cold of northern Yonkers to see the January eclipse, but Long (judging from his description) seems to have seen about as much from the roof of his apartment house in 100th St.” (to Miss Elizabeth Toldridge, 12 August 1932)

It's about 3:00 into the silent video that you see the eclipse - and thus you'll see what Lovecraft saw. It's as close to standing next to him as we'll ever get.
