Gravestones: Homages to the Dead

Monumental Cemetery, Milan, Italy (anadah)

This gravestone is located in Milan, Italy. It seems to tell a story and to also cast recriminations.

Calvary Cemetery, St. Louis, Missouri




Mt. Carmel Cemetery, Chicago, Illinois (Katz 42)

A family, together forever, trapped in stone?






Lakeview Cemetery, Cleveland, Ohio (el rebelde)

This head stone seems macabre but perhaps during the era this child died these were popular.



Terry Cemetery, Terry, Mississippi (Natalie Maynor)

Hopefully it's the ravages of time which turned this little girl's headstone into something that looks almost evil. If not, we cannot imagine why someone would chose this for a grave?
