Henry Monument, Chartiers Cemetery

A massive chunk of Ionic classicism that certainly does its job of making the Henry family plot easy to find. The large volutes on top cleverly echo the Ionic volutes of the capitals of the columns. The monument probably dates from 1902, when John Henry was buried here. The individual tombstones look like children’s toy models of the main monument.
