Crump Obelisk, Richland Cemetery

A splendid Victorian obelisk, rich in the kind of ornamentation that would be repudiated a generation later. Note especially the monogram halfway up. Stephan S. Crump died in 1912 at the age of 82; we suspect that he bought this obelisk for himself earlier, perhaps twenty years before he died.
