Hurricane of 1938 Marker - Wickford, Rhode Island

This Friday, September 21st marks another anniversary of the Hurricane of 1938, which we covered here in this three-part post. We don't hear too much about that monster storm anymore as the generation that experienced it firsthand is diminishing among our ranks.  But here and there the great storm left calling cards that remain.  The generation that experienced it wanted it remembered, too.

Here on the brick facade of a charming bookstore on the corner of Main and Brown streets in Wickford, Rhode Island is a plaque.



To measure by, lest we forget.
