Kamin Mausoleum, West View Cemetery


The West View Cemetery is a Jewish cemetery, but negative historical associations did not prevent two of its residents from specifying the popular Egyptian style for their grand mausoleums. This is one of them, built (according to the inscription) in about 1930 by Herman Kamin. It is not as grand as the Egyptian mausoleums in the very richest cemeteries, but it does have fresh palms in the urns, and a fine view of the pyramids from inside.
