David L. Clark Mausoleum, Homewood Cemetery

This fine polished-granite mausoleum announces his name to anyone who visits this sheltered corner of the cemetery; but D. L. Clark’s real monument is the Clark Bar, which trumpets his name to anyone who visits a convenience-store cash register. Polished granite was expensive, but a very good choice for Pittsburgh, since the grime of industry could be wiped off with little labor and no damage to the stone.
