M. Agnes Brewster Monument, South Side Cemetery

A kind of obelisk with a weirdly cartoony little statue of a lyre-playing woman at the summit. It seems the bereaved husband erected this monument to his young wife, who died at twenty-four; he lived nearly four more decades, but probably never remarried, as his name was engraved below hers by a different hand when he died.
