Photographer's Note

This is the begining of a new theme: Cemeteries

This cemetery was established in 1898. Mount Hope Cemetery is the only active Catholic cemetery within city limits. In earlier days, the part of the Burke Brook Ravine that ran through this cemetery was park like and graced by the brook and two ponds. Around 1960, the cemetery management decided to reclaim this area in order to open it up for burials. The stream was put in a storm sewer and the ravine filled in.

While doing some research about this cemetery I found this interesting:
Among those buried in Mount Hope Cemetery are prelates and priests, religious men and women, husbands and wives, judges and politicians, soldiers and sailors, the knighted and the be medaled, Canadian Olympians, bankers and industrialists, philanthropists, writers, the old Irish Catholic elite even a few bank robbers and some ordinary people who lost their lives in tragic circumstances.

**Post Pro - Nothing cropped, decreased the green saturation, brightened, and increased contrast.
