We found this rather curious grave marker at the Angelus Rosedale Cemetery. If you look closely, you will see that each exposed side names a different Summers. There are a few more markers at Angelus Rosedale that feature this curious style of identification.
Angelus Rosedale was the first cemetery in Los Angeles to accept African-Americans when Oscar-winning actress Hattie McDaniel was put to rest there. It has some absolutely amazing statuary and grave markers. The marker included here was more than a little eye-catching.
The deep reddish brown stone was stained with age. I’m seriously considering coming by at another time with some clean soft rags and some water to give it a good cleaning. It appears it’s been ignored for quite some time now.
Exposure Time: 0.004s (1/250)
Focal Length: 75mm (112mm in 35mm)
