Cities of the Dead: Historic New Orleans Cemeteries
By Carl D. Robinson (photos) & Jennie N. Robinson (text)
New Orleans is a place of history and mystery, and nowhere is this more evident than in the above-ground cemeteries that are scattered around the city. Featuring photos from eleven New Orleans cemeteries, the graves and monuments included in this book are, generally speaking, the historically significant, the aesthetically beautiful, and the simply heartrending. From the oldest tombs in St. Louis Cemetery #1 to the opulent tombs of Metairie & Lake Lawn Cemetery, much of the rich history of New Orleans can be gleaned from her cemeteries.
