Alexander H. King Monument, Allegheny Cemetery

At last we find that exceedingly popular flower-strewing mourner with both her hands. We have seen her in the Mount Lebanon Cemetery, in the South Side Cemetery (on the Nickel and Baxmyer monuments), and in St. Peter’s Cemetery (Arlington), but always with her hands broken off. Below we see that fragile flower-strewing hand, which old Pa Pitt has photographed quite close for the sake of anyone who would like to restore one of those other statues.

This is a different Alexander King from the Alexander King who was Richard Mellon Scaife’s great-grandfather.
