Further to my recent post on Lovecraft favourite New York garden, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Record archives are now online 1912-1944, and may have pictures. I haven’t had time to look, as yet. The Gardens included Lovecraft’s cherished Japan-inspired public gardens.

Most of these are on the Internet Archive, which should mean the pictures have been auto-extracted and placed on Flickr. Only… Flickr has just cancelled and deleted the Internet Archive’s public-domain illustrations channel. Durn.

Update: Yes, there are pictures. The Record archive is also available over on the BHL, but although the scans are larger there the bad contrast is the same. The Gardens website has a few of the same Record pictures online from glass plate scans, but at a uselessly tiny size.
