Notes
-  Index data: 1-2, Bathtub Madonna, Grant Mills; 3-10, Statue and church at North Scituate. Some teenagers nearby told me it was a Baptist Church but it is not the North Scituate Baptist Church which was one block away. The teenagers said that the seats that face towards the door at the back of the church were faced that way in order to let people in the service keep an eye out of impending Indian attacks; 11-14, Sport fisherman at Narragansett Pier; 15, Looking across to Bonnet Point from the north end of Narragansett Pier.
