Exhibit ~ Hurricane of 1938 ~ Providence

Providence Public Library
150 Empire St.
Providence, Rhode Island
June - August 31, 2013

Thanks to our friends at Transport Providence for turning us on to this one!



From the Providence Public Library's site:

Hurricane season on the east coast started on June 1st. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) is predicting an active year, but Rhode Islanders have weathered the storms before.

In acknowledgement of some of Rhode Island's worst hurricanes in memory, the Special Collections and Rhode Island Collection are exhibiting items that showcase the power of these hurricanes and the fortitude of Rhode Islanders who lived through them. In particular, we are celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Hurricane of '38 - particularly devastating storm.
We've been meaning to check out the restoration in the old section of the library, and this provides even more motivation.
