Sanding the headstone


Quite a number of the newer graves in Highgate Cemetery are made from wood, which I thought was quite interesting -- in stark contrast to the heavy, imposing, we'll-be-here-forever stone mausolea of the late Victorian period. This one was being sanded down and cleaned up as I walked by.

  1. I haven't seen a wooden head stone myself. It would offer possibilities.

  2. This is new to me too, an interesting idea. Pat Kavanagh was well known literary agent, with serious famous authors.
