Some of you might remember when I found what might best be explained as a metal locket protecting a portrait on a tombstone. I haven’t seen another one since then until last weekend, when we were coming back from a trip to Michigan. We came across a cemetery filled with tombstones featuring portraits, and some of them had the metal casing with a flip-top cover. Some were broken:

We spent last weekend at an event in Saline, Michigan, and on the way back, we stopped at some rural Ohio cemeteries.  We stumbled by accident over the Beth Shalom Cemetery in Oregon, Ohio. Anyone who’s been following this blog for any length of time knows of my fondness for memorials that include a portrait of the deceased, and my not-so-infrequent rants abut the destruction of porcelain portraits. Beth Shalom Cemetery has a large number of portraits, and I only noticed two empty spaces where portraits should have been but were missing. So over the next few weeks, I am happy to report that you will be seeing a lot more portraits on here. (And some new cemeteries in general.)
