It has become increasingly rare that I find gratuitous gun displays around Pittsburgh. But I did return to the Oakdale Cemetery on Saturday to take a picture and thus to record the location of a couple cannons on display there.

This isn’t the first cemetery where I’ve found a gratuitous gun. That would be Southside Cemetery in, I think, the Carrick neighborhood.

Rest in violence, I guess.
