A simple Doric design whose severity is moderated by a Greek-key decoration.
A simple Doric mausoleum with extra space for a large family. The stained glass inside is very good, except that (in Father Pitt’s opinion) the wreath-and-swag decoration rather spoils the effect of the naturalistic forest and stream.
An attractive modernist mausoleum, probably from after the Second World War, that combines simplicity of form with enough (simplified) decorative detail to avoid monotony. The stained glass inside is pretty, if not particularly inspired.
We frequently find whole sections of cemeteries prickly with obelisks, as here in the West View Cemetery, where they add considerably to the picturesqueness of the landscape.
A monument dealer’s standard-model mausoleum with an elegant Star-of-David window inside.
Another Egyptian mausoleum that hits all the expected marks, except that it is too small (or cheap) for lotus columns. This one, however, adds the delightful detail of pharaoh’s-head door pulls, which more than makes up for the missing columns.
Little smiley characters like the one at upper left occasionally appear on mausoleum doors in Pittsburgh cemeteries. It’s a cheerful little mystery.
A monument in a sort of Jewish Romanesque style, with a Star of David worked into the relief. Compare it to the very similar, but explicitly Christian, Jenkins monument in the Homewood Cemetery.
