Providence of 1916

OK, this post is really for me 'cuase I though it was a cool brochure. Providence was big and getting bigger all the time, and so attracted conventions. The pictures and text show contemporary highlights for tourists. A nice snapshot in time of July 1916. (Lovecraft was almost 26).

Hi Chris really great brochure! I found a great map of Providence in 1917 in the University of Autin site here >>>> http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/historic_us_cities.html

Many other cities are very interesting too (Boston, NY, Salem etc..) maps being from 19th century to roaring twenties
