Easton Cemetery Meets Sandy

Established in 1849, the Easton Cemetery is the earliest and best surviving example of a romantic parklike cemetery within the Lehigh Valley metro area. We heard that there was some damage sustained as a result of Hurricane Sandy.  A couple of weeks ago, we set out to check the rumors for ourselves. Much to our surprise, the damage was not as bad as we had originally thought. Here are a few images from that day.

Laurel Hill Cemetery

As part of the photo shoot I did with the photogs at Eastern State Penitentiary, we also went to Laurel Hill located in the North section of Philadelphia. Laurel Hill is one of the few cemeteries in the nation to be honored with the designation of National Historic Landmark, a title received in 1998. Numerous prominent people are buried at the Cemetery, including many of Philadelphia’s leading industrial magnates. General Meade and thirty-nine other Civil War-era generals reside here, in addition to six Titanic passengers. Laurel Hill celebrated their 175th anniversary this year (1836-201).

St. Michael’s Cemetery

St. Michael’s Cemetery was first made popular by Walker Evans. The following photograph is his image with, Bethlehem Steel in the background, taken in 1935:

The following is my attempt at the same location. Unfortunately, the headstone in his image no longer exists.
