Get the book, too! Splendid photographs, fascinating commentary, and dozens of opportunities to say, “I can’t believe this exists.”
The great cemeteries of Pittsburgh are outdoor museums of art and architecture, and Father Pitt loves to wander in them and contemplate their beauties. His main site has always carried these cemetery pictures, but old Pa Pitt began to worry that his regular visitors might think he had a morbid obsession with death. Thus this site, which is devoted to nothing but death, so that you, the casual visitor, cannot say that you were not warned in a timely fashion.
Using These Pictures
We have decided to make all these pictures available under the Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Universal Public Domain Dedication, so no permission is needed to use them for any purpose whatsoever. (Author credit to “Father Pitt” is nice, but not necessary. Worrying about particular conditions is just too much effort.)
Anyone who has more information about a monument, or an interesting story, is invited and in fact earnestly desired to leave a comment. Father Pitt especially loves corrections.
Some older articles are missing pictures, because those pictures were hosted on an external server that stopped hosting them. Father Pitt is working to replace those images, but meanwhile he can only apologize for the inconvenience.
