A Carillon, a Pagota and some Kitsch – 1 August 2011

posted in: Uncategorized | 0
I often find myself staring at the elegant tower inside the North entrance to the Victoria Lawn Cemetery on Queenston Road in St. Catharines. I had assumed that the tower was a Folly, a building built primarily for decoration but that it is in fact a CarillonThe architecture certainly mirrors the Anglo Scottish dominance of these parts and the influence of the Scottish Rite Freemasons. Here is map to the cemetery a map of the cemetery if you wish to find the Carillon or Pagota shown below or just have a tour.

After having been to the Victoria Lawn Cemetery to photograph the above Carillon / Folly and then the Pagota on the very southern part of the cemetery.  I left the cemetery by Emmett Road and I immediately came upon this very vividly coloured collection of outdoor ornaments and bric a brac. I have to tell you, I had a big smile on my face and was grateful to see that there are many types of people in St. Catharines. Enjoy.
