    McKeown mausoleum

    A Romanesque cube with an unusual apse in the back. The decorations in relief are particularly fine. The effect would have been better with bronze doors, but bronze doors tend to go missing, and their place has been taken by concrete.

  • McKeown Mausoleum, Calvary Cemetery

    Another hulking black Pittsburgh Romanesque mausoleum, this one is distinguished by a very unusual apse. In many cemeteries, unfortunately, vandalism has persuaded the keepers to block the entrances to mausoleums with ugly concrete. It now becomes a task for archaeologists from future centuries to discover what is inside that apse.
