Calvary Cemetery Mausoleum

-A A +A
1919, Anglaise Mausoleum Company. Casselman St., between Military Rd. and 28th St.

A central Egyptian pylon is balanced on each side by long wings which terminate in mastabalike tombs. At the entrance is a pair of lotus columns. The smooth dark granite walls and the closed nature of the design reinforce its funereal atmosphere.
