Straub-Anshutz Monument, Allegheny Cemetery

This diminutive structure looks a bit like a toy mausoleum. The names of generations of Straubs, Anshutzes, and Walkers are on bronze plates on the door, and from the shadows on the bronze it looks as though at least five Straubs have fallen off. One must assume that they were all cremated, and that this is actually a little closet full of urns.
