This crypt, which appears to house heiress Clara Baldwin Stocker,  has seen vandalism on a terrible scale.  Not only is the door’s central panel missing, but there are bullet holes in the glass at the rear of the crypt.  Ms Stocker even has a street named for her in Los Angeles, so why is this crypt being permitted such accelerated decay?  It just doesn’t seem right.

I rendered the photo in black and white as an experiment, and am quite happy with the results, though not at all happy with the condition of the crypt.
