I bought these a few years ago in an antique store in Helsinki. My favorite has a die cut that reveals Santa's saucy helper... and a cup of coffee. Very Scandinavian.
|I'll bet an architect designed this one.|
|Shellee probably dressed all in black and wore chunky jewelry.|
The cemetery service sticker becomes obtrusive on such a minimal stone.
|A poignant stone for a four-year-old.|
|Nice scripts, which feel oddly commercial. They appeared on stones with Jewish and Italian names.|
|Unusually rusticated letters that look unfinished.|
|A hybrid Art Deco / Arts & Crafts stone.|
|The lettering style looks older than the dates.|
|The density of stones on some crowded Jewish sections reminds me of Roman Vishniac photos.|
|The mausoleums are posh.|
|Stained glass windows glow behind mausoleum doors.|
