Hundreds of people showed up for the Full Moon tour of Spring Grove Cemetery last Saturday. They were divided into four tours. It’s a testimony to the cemetery’s size that these tours only passed each other occasionally.
The part that struck me most was the clock tower on what is now called the Historic Office, despite being an empty building:
While the ladder visible from inside the tower seems to indicate that this building is being renovated, that’s not why the clock (engraved on all four sides of the tower) has no hands:
According to our tour guide, this clock never had any hands, “Because time has no meaning in a cemetery.”
I wonder if the clock in a post office waiting room should be the same way.
