George’s Postcard Note: Chosen to be in best “Small Works on Paper” show sponsored by the state’s Arts Council. Exotic structures in an old cemetery – who’s not intrigued? I picked a fine day to visit this historic place, but had a hard time deciding where to stand – it was all beautiful – and which monument spoke strongest to me. I ended up with this view of several with Mt. Holly’s grand old trees in fall foliage. The one feature, though, that struck me as most unique to the place was its wrought iron fence. It seemed to tie a bow around all the family members lying within.
