Day 465


April 8th, 2013

Wandering around Holy Cross Cemetery today, I came upon this highly unusual family crypt. In order to access the vault, you have to turn that wheel at the base of the monument, which rotates the threaded shaft and slides the massive stone cover out of the way. It takes forever to open, according to one of the cemetery's maintenance workers who's had to do it a few times over the years.


  1. Security through Inconvenience!

  2. Anna One says:

    There are so many names on the monument. I wonder how they all fit in there; perhaps cremated remains also. Quite unusual set up.
