I wandered through Island Cemetery again yesterday, and what caught my eye this time was all the Victorian-era marble scattered about. The Victorians may have been straight-laced in how they behaved, but their arts went right up over the top - ornate, full of flourishes, exotic (the fascination with all things oriental reached its peak during the Victorian era), neo-Gothic. The marble stones in Island Cemetery from that era reflect all of that. Here are the best examples of what I found yesterday.
