  1. I know and love this mausoleum,I used to jog by quite frequently when I lived in Pittsburgh. I am now in LA researching Egyptian Revival, your image popped out as an old friend. I have a photo in my own photo album, quite similar, the final resting spot of the winters a long favorite. Thanks for the memories,
    Take care,
