Keep Photo of Deceased on Grave (Oct, 1933)

Keep Photo of Deceased on Grave

PORTRAITS on tombstones are a decorative idea that is being put into practice throughout the country.

Consult the photo below to see how the idea is worked. A photo medallion of the deceased is cut out and inserted in a frame carved in the headpiece. The photo is then inserted and cemented in place.

A window of heavy isinglass, cemented, with a good grade of transparent waterproof glue, will preserve the photo for years and years against the ravages of time and weather, making a lasting memento to the one whose grave is so marked.
