This tower is in the heart of Mt. Auburn Cemetery... Founded in 1831 as "America's first garden cemetery". The establishment of Mount Auburn Cemetery, about four miles outside of Boston, marked a major shift in the way Americans buried their dead. As the country's first large-scale designed landscape open to the public, it inspired many offspring--other rural cemeteries, the first public parks, and the first designed suburbs in the 19th century.



C+C always appreciated

Inspired by your post I foundthe web page of the placewhere saw many a beautiful further picture and read the following words:''As an active burial place and a vibrant cultural institution, Mount Aubery Cemetary celebrates the lives of individuals who have shaped our world by opening our renowned landscape, art and architecture''

'watching over you' isreally an appopriate name here! I did some minor adjustments @ PS such as sharpening and tone curving and some noise reduction for a bit more emphasize. Hope you don't mind : )
