Cemeteries and Tombstones.

The last burial in this little military cemetery was in 1940. It is now locked, and access is by appointment only. The best I could do was taek the photo through the bars.

so many places locked up these days

To me it seems odd that a cemetery would be locked. Anyone trying to get out??

It's a shame that what looks like such a lovely place is locked. :(

I really love your photos. I'm still working my way round the DP community and just found your blog. You've got a good eye, it really showcases your city.

Too bad I hit enter too soon. Clearly I could use a lesson or two in typing. *sigh*

Anyway. To continue.

I can't wait to see more. :)

What a shame that it's not open. Vandalism has been mentioned often in many of the cemetery postings, so perhaps it is locked to keep the memorials safe.
BTW, Kate's comment is a hoot.
