James H. Wallace Monument, Allegheny Cemetery


An imposing and convincing bronze portrait of Mr. Wallace tops this monument, erected in 1900. It is a great pity that no one seems to know who the sculptor was, but it is cheering to see that he or she remembered to provide Mr. Wallace with a stack of books to take with him into the afterlife. He was a contractor, and that may be a set of blueprints in his lap.

  1. It appears to me that the work might be signed on the front, lower left (facing it). There seems to be something there but I can’t enlarge the picture big enough, or actually, clear enough, to read. can you?
