Rock of Ages: South Brisbane Cemetery Symbolism


'A surprising array of gravestone symbolism awaits the visitor to the history-laden South Brisbane Cemetery. Ships and anchors, palettes and lambs, angels and cherubs, Russian and Celtic crosses, and a variety of plants and flowers that held a range of meanings for Victorian-era people. Based on the databases of the 'Friends of South Brisbane Cemetery', Rock of Ages provides an attractive photographic record of these headstones.'
