Serendipity Sunday - Mail Order Tombstones



I was researching the sport of Fencing, using keyword "fencing" and because of "iron grave fencing" being keywords in the topic, this catalogue popped up!





Who knew you could check out fridges, sofas and tombstones from the same department store??  Even Tiffany's got in the act!

  1. It was a revelation when I learned that house plans came from a catalog, so tombstones should be no surprise but they are!
