Joseph Horne Monument, Allegheny Cemetery


Joseph Horne, the department-store baron, certainly had enough money for a mausoleum, but chose to be remembered by this beautiful monument instead. A mourning woman lays a wreath on the grave; she is consoled by an angel who points the way Mr. Horne is presumed to have headed. Just to make the message clear, the angel also bears a palm, emblematic of victory.
