Has anyone heard how the Calabasas Pet Cemetery has fared in the fires? I keep seeing that Calabasas is on mandatory evacuation. I hope everyone comes through safely and the fire avoids this remarkable spot.
It surprises me a little that people buried their pets in a pet cemetery as far back as the 60’s. I - wrongly, I guess - assume that everyone had a yard where they buried their pets who had passed on. We did when I was little. Now I think pet cemeteries are as important as people cemeteries. For some, their pets are their only family.
The photo I took through the one-way/smoked glass on the door of the crypt in the Masonic Cemetery. You never know what you’re going to see inside these - statues, trash, an open coffin (I don’t actually think that happens a lot, but you never know). This one was business as usual. Beautiful stained glass with Masonic symbols I don’t fully understand.
Sorrow vanquished/Labor ended/Jordan passed. I looked up ‘Jordan passed’ and learned that the Jordan River is a symbol of freedom: “For you are about to cross the Jordan to go in to possess the land which the Lord your God is giving you, and you shall possess it and live in it.” Deut. 11:31

Some people call these foo dogs, other people call them guardian lions.

Within its gates I heard the sound Of winds in cypress caverns caught Of huddling trees that moaned, and sought To whisper what their roots had found. - George Sterling

Adam and Rachel Haas immigrated from Germany to Ohio. They kept moving west to Iowa, and lost 2 sons in the Civil War. The oldest, Adam Jr., died in the hell that was Andersonville. Rachel outlived everyone in her family and died in 1899. Sometimes I think about her. . . . #sacrifice #civilwar #veterans #andersonville #strongwomen #pioneers #iowapioneers #pioneerwomen #prisonerofwar #rural #ruraliowa #goldstarparents #somegaveall #civilwargrave #graveyard_dead #graveyard_life #entropy_to_epitaphs #walkingamongthedead #project_necropolis #taphophiletourist #taphophile #project_necropolis #walking_among_the_gravestones #headstone

The quiet servitude of a convent is perhaps the perfect location for an excellent arts and cultural hub, which the @abbotsfordconvent is today - taken a couple weeks ago during my visit with @_annagrace_smith for the 3MBS book fair - . . . #supportthearts #localhistory #abbotsford #abbotsfordconvent #australianhistory #australiana #convent #arts #contemporaryart #conceptualart #booksale #3mbs #bookfair #headstone #hereliesshould #ohthatwecouldburyitforgood

Professeur Grancher: 1843-1907 | Paris • Dr. Jacques-Joseph Grancher was a pediatrician. Finding information on him was a tad difficult, but he is remembered for his efforts in preventing tuberculosis in children. His focus was disease control which lead him to be involved in the first successful use of a vaccination against rabies. • #gothgirls #death #dead #grave #headstone #cemetery #graveyard #montmartrecemetery #gothgoth #travelblogger #deathtravel #darktravel #deathpositivemovement #deathpositive #alternative #gothicbabe #gothictravel #medicine #doctor #vaccines #medicalinformation #history
@gracehollowdoll The graveyard is not the final resting place of our dear departed but an ephemeral repository of their remains. The real graveyard, however, is somewhere deep in our heart, where we can always visit them at any time of the day, talk about some unforgettable summers, or cry in solitude as if they were always there for us to stay. And should our twilight come, when we can no longer see the light of the day, some people dear to us will build a graveyard in their hearts. They will let us stay for a while or perhaps longer, as long as they continue to remember, but it does not matter anymore. What is comforting to know, no matter how tragic or tranquil our death may be, somewhere somehow someone will always build a sublime place for us to stay 💀 #pinupmodel #pinupgirls #vintagemodel #pinuplifestyle #pinupgram #pinuphair #pinuplife #pinupfashion #pinupstyle #pinups #pinup #pinupphotography #bettiebangs #modernpinup #rockabillygirl #graveyards #headstone #cemetary #cemetery #tombstones #burialground #cemeteries #headstones #allhallowseve #oldcemetery #graveyard #cemetery_shots #cemeteryphotography #cemeterywandering
George Russell served in the Nevada Legislature, owned one of Elko's general merchandise stores, and operated one of Nevada's largest ranches. He was born in Ireland in 1837 and in 1853 when he was only 16 years old, followed his older brother, James, to America, sailing around Cape Horn to California. He settled in Placer County and operated a freight and merchandise business. Learning of the Comstock Lode, he moved his business to Nevada. He first settled in Cortez where he formed a partnership with Lewis Rice and John Ruben Bradley. This firm, Russell & Company operated for 25 years and at one time had 10,000 head of cattle. He married Mattie Marchand and had five children. In politics he was a Democrat, serving in the Legislature, a delegate to the Democratic National Conventions, and once a candidate for Governor. After dissolving his partnership with Lewis and Bradley, he purchased W.T. Smith General Merchandise store and opened the George Russell Company. In 1918, he was the largest landowner in Nevada with 40,749 acres. He was also instrumental in forming the State Cattle Association and the Nevada State Stockman's Association. #cemetery #cemeteryphotography #masoleum #tombstone #tombstonetourist #headstone #headstonehistory #taphophile #ancestry #familysearch #billiongraves #elko #russell #notrelated #cemeterygirl #taphophiles_only #coimetromania #genealogy #genealogist
This single slant monument uses a number of symbols memorializing the life of Lynn Frances Katz, Ph. D. The epitaph reads "Beloved Wife, Sister, Aunt & Professor." The bunny on the face plate was carved by our artisan experts. This mahogany slant monument was installed at Beth Shalom Cemetery in Pittsburgh, PA. . . . #jewish #judaism #professormemorial #hobby #slantmonument #bunny #pittsburgh #pittsburghbusiness #ancestry #memorial #monument #granite #customgranite #stonework #stoneworking #stoneworkers #headstone #headstones #gravestone #gravestones #tombstone #cemetery #cemeteries #family #legacy #romemonument
Monuments featuring the passions of the memorialized are immensely popular in the Pittsburgh area. This black granite monument honors the memory of Michael A. Lilly, an avid player and lover of his piano. The piano keys were diamond etched by our experts. Monument designs like these start at $4,000. #piano #pianolove #memorial #monument #granite #customgranite #stonework #stoneworking #stoneworkers #headstone #headstones #gravestone #gravestones #tombstone #cemetery #cemeteries #family #hobby #legacy #romemonument
“At the very point that I’ve taken something for granted, I have at that same moment taken it to its grave. And if I look around, I realize I’ve cultivated quite a #cemetery .” -#craigdlounsbrough
Thank you for your service, Sgt. Hankins.
A happy Veterans Day to my dad, grandfathers, uncles, and almost everybody in the family up until my generation. We’re the first civilians in America on either side. Oh... and Zebulon Platt here. We went on a tour of the Old Burial Ground in Huntington Village today, it was fantastic. I finally got to see inside the Soldiers And Sailors Building as well.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #headstone #historic #huntingtonvillage #longislandhistory #americanrevolution #historicgraves #historiccemetery
"Time amongst the dead is never time wasted." - Me Late #Fall day, brunch followed by a stroll in my favorite #NewHaven #cemetery 💀🖤 I've always been pulled to the left once I enter under its Egyptian Revival gates, this time I took a hard right, stopped at the Veterans Memorial stone-thank you for your service. It's a challenge as a die hard taphophile not to stop and take pictures of literally every other #headstone and monument here: #funeraryart spanning from the 1700's up to a stone I saw today that was from 2008 in every material and style. While taking a photo of the perfect example of a 'garden grave', my camera/phone inexplicably just died. Here's what happened next...... I hear a bird up in the tree to my left: I'm treated to a beautiful red headed woodpecker. I don't see them too much since my neighbors took down the slowly dying pine in their yard that used to over hang mine, so my heart was happy. Off to my right, on the ground, I see an old chubby squirrel busily digging around, not sure if he was looking for food or a place to bury food for the winter. He was feet from me, knew I was there, and continued his industrious work anyway. The #sun is dappled through a huge golden leaved #Maple 🍁 Set against a beautiful #bluesky , I just held up my face to the golden light and breathed deep. It seems like all the congestion in my head over the last week in this one day is finally making its way out of my body. A few feet further along the path in the cemetery, I come to a nearly bare Hawthorn tree, naked except for a few berries which two loudly happy squawking blue jays are making a quick meal out of. As the tree is mostly bare, I can glimpse into that stunning cerulean blue sky and see a murder of crows or ravens, too high to tell which, circling and arcing above me and the cemetery. My walk continued for another maybe 30 minutes, aware that in one hour at 4pm the gates would be locked and I needed to get home. Without the distraction of taking pictures or any electronic device, the Dead reminded me today was a really good day to be alive. #taphophile #GroveStreetCemetery
