While scanning family photos, my aunt and I came across this Halloween class photo (my mom is in the back row, 6th from the left, wearing a bonnet and glasses; I think she’s either a pilgrim or a nurse). This would have been circa 1955. I find the masks to her left completely terrifying. Some of the costumes remind me of the Halloween scenes from the movie version of To Kill a Mockingbird.
I found this quiet little area at the back of the Old Wye Episcopal Church Cemetery in Wye Mills, Md. Note how the cross is used as a motif on the parish web site. I’ll post more about the cemetery in a future Tombstone Tuesday post.
You reach this area by crossing the bridge below at the rear of the cemetery.
I would love to know where exactly Bonniebrook is/was…
