Singer Mausoleum, Allegheny Cemetery

Singer mausoleum

A Victorian interpretation of Jeffersonian classicism. Domes are fairly unusual on Pittsburgh mausoleums, but this one works well with the “modern Ionic” design. The four large lamps on the corners are a bit much, in old Pa Pitt’s opinion; but the Singers didn’t ask him.

Bronze doors on the Singer mausoleum

Two layers of bronze and one cheap padlock keep vandals out, or perhaps the Singers in.
