Steamer Sunk at Pier in Providence Harbor, R.I. The Great New England Hurrican of 1938
Steamer sunk at the pier in Providence Harbor.
September 21, 1938, will long be remembered as the date of the Big Hurricane which swept New England - in all history something never before known to this part of the country. The loss of lives was appalling, property damage mounted to hundreds of millions of dollars and the homeless counted to hundreds of thousands. The tremendous fury of the wind left behind destruction, destitution and utter ruin. Printed by Tichnor Bros. Inc., 160 No. Wash. St., Boston, Mass.
