Title

[Mount Calvary Catholic Cemetery in Dubuque, Iowa]

Creator

Loemker, Herman J., 1868-1937

Description

Two girls are standing near one of the Stations of the Cross in Mt. Calvary Catholic Cemetery. The monument is of carved stone and has a cross on its top. Bushes partially obscure the view of the front of the monument. Each girl is dressed in a light colored dress and is wearing a hat with a small brim. Other monuments of similar style and size are also visible, and comprise the additional Stations of the Cross. The photograph seems to have been taken on or near the top of a hill. A lower ridge and a building may be seen in the background. The number 1293 is written on a label that has been stuck to the lower left corner of the slide.
