Reed Monument, Allegheny Cemetery

The earliest burial in the shadow of this monument seems to be Nelson P. Reed in 1891, which we may take as the approximate date of the monument. The figure on the top clutching a cross is a good though not great piece of sculpture, and it is very striking silhouetted against the right kind of sky.
