Schreiner Mausoleum, Union Dale Cemetery

One of the largest and most elaborate mausoleums in Pittsburgh, this pile of classical Ionic detailing is topped by a statue of Hope shaking her fist at the heavens. The Schreiners must have been a very wealthy family, but they leave very little trace on the Internet, and (rather absurdly) do not even appear in the Union Dale Cemetery’s own list of “Notables.”
