  • Wallingford-Davison Family Plot, Allegheny Cemetery

    A family plot with a romantic Gothic marbleĀ monument, now illegible but still grand in its way. It was once surrounded by an iron fence, but like almost all such fences it has been removed to make life easier for groundskeepers.

    We can see where the iron fence once fitted into the stone gateposts.

    Note the rusty remnants of an iron gate.

  • Steenson-McCreery Monument, Homewood Cemetery

    This is the very attractive result of modernizing an obelisk by applying Art Deco style to it. The earliest burial in this plot seems to be from 1925, which is probably about the date of the monument.
