Ever since you announced this trek I have dreamed of going on it, but alas my wife is ill, so that could not be. Not only is the cementery of great interest to me, but having someone of Phil Nuxhall's stature along would have been so valuable! I am sure his, and Mary's insight was very insightful. (I hope you took lots of notes to use in your future tour.)

I am from Cincinnati and have visited Spring Grove cemetery there many times. Phil is the historic guide there. Both my parents are interred in the University of Cincinnati Body Donation site.

You have improved in your photographic skills quite a bit since you began your blog and it really shows in these photos.

Bojour 2x:

Thanks a million for allowing me to click on Nureyev's tomb mosaic and go to the actual picture and then, by clicking on that image get the full sized version enabling me to examine it in great detail. Nowhere on the internet could I find a decent image, much less in high resolution. Yours allows me to experience the mosaic as though I was actually there. I bet Mary and Phil went crazy when you guys finally found it! It is so absolutely unique, and looks like a real carpet! (Nothing like that back home in Spring Grove cemetery!)


Richard, you are too too kind, but we WERE like kids in a candy store weren't we?
So nice to read the comment from our fellow Cincinnatian Stef. When your wife improves you must call Richard for one of his tours. Stef, are you living in Paris full-time now?

OMG I've never seen a more ornate tombstone. That word doesn't do the artwork justice. Thanks so much for sharing your most excellent adventure with me and the internet world.

love your site , inspiring photographs. I remember visiting St Genevieve in the fifties on an exchange visit to france.Viry CHATILLON. It brought back so many happy memories.It bowled me over . Am I right in saying that the inside of the church is very ornate or is my memory playing tricks. Afterall it's nearly fifty years ago.
