Gallup Memorial Gateway

A famous Hartford sign on Fairfield Avenue, designed by George Keller. Two columns on both sides of the main gate both proclaiming the name Cedar Hill Cemetery. In the foreground of this masterpiece are some stakes with neon tape. 

I am praying that this is not the site of a future "sign" that would simply be superfluous to the majestic sign directly behind it and would be another example of so many noble buildings who already have signs create a special one directed towards passing motor cars instead of directing the eyes toward the entrance or building itself.
