Remember the Dead

Inspired by an old country song that talked about flowers of stone on one’s grave, I searched around for funeral arts stuff. I found this creepy old pamphlet cover advertising the wares of the Goodwin Marble and Granit Works company from the late 19th century.
Click to embiggen to see the granite roses.
It seems that Accidental Mysteries is also mementoing the mori today. I guess the end of the fiscal year brings out the melancholy in us all. pfff.
