1893 Nararangasett

Lovecraft was 3 years old - his father had already been ill. (In 1893 he began having hallucinations while in Chicago on business, and on 25 April he was admitted to Butler Hospital in Providence.)

This is a typical beach scene during that year.

The Illustrated American (NY, NY) dated Sept 2, 1893.

This has a full page poster-like display with 9 photos showing people in bathing suits circa 1893 at NARRAGANSET PIER BEACH, Rhode Island.
