Tina's Pic Story - Fences


Tina's Pic Story is back - the theme this week provided by Tina is Fences. This iron fence is on the street side of the Elm Street Cemetery or Old Episcopal Graveyard in Ansonia. It is reputed by some to be the oldest burial ground in the US; The oldest remaining marker is that of Rev. John Bowers, a clergyman who died in 1687. I do not know the age of the fence, guess from the 1800s. It is a fascinating place to visit as the headstones tell stories of area residents from centuries before. A fence that surrounds history...

I like moni's take on this: a fence as a line between life and death.

Love the autumn colors!
