One of the sphinxes on the Winter mausoleum, Allegheny Cemetery.

And speaking of robber barons, if you think the only good robber baron is a dead robber baron, our friend Father Pitt has a new site called Pittsburgh Cemeteries; or, The Art and Architecture of Death. Already there are dozens of pictures of mausoleums and monuments of the rich and infamous, and many more will be coming.

If you happen to see a notice that the site is “under review,” come back in a day or so. The “review” seldom takes longer than that.
