St. Patrick's Cemetary #3

Several cemeteries, including the three-part Catholic St. Patrick's, sit at one of of the Canal Street trolley route: the end of the line for both the tracks and those buried there. These grave sites, all above ground, require substantial upkeep that looks to be performed at varying levels of diligence. Judging from the neat stack here, the Reillys have had someone caring for their site for the last 130 years. But then looking at the disarray closing in at the edges, one wonders if the care has also reached the end of its line.

Location: New Orleans, Louisiana
