Con. T. Kennedy Shows, And Hugo

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

In the Riverdale Cemetery in Columbus, Georgia, we found this monument shaped like a carnival tent:

The carnival show train collided with another train that was supposed to have waited for this show train to have passed but did not.  Twenty-four people were killed.

A newspaper account is here.  Sad.

This monument reminded me of this one I had seen on Flickr, at a cemetery in Hugo, Oklahoma which is a town in which circuses wintered.  These other monuments are fantastic: here, here, here, here, here, here, here, herehere, and here.
