Wainwright Monument, Allegheny Cemetery

The pyramid (in classical Roman rather than Egyptian shape) is unusual enough; the fact that it appears to be reading a pair of giant books makes it look a bit like one of the Daleks from Doctor Who. The books are almost completely illegible; the cemetery’s site guesses that these monuments mark the graves of the Wainwright Brothers, successful brewers in the middle 1800s.
