The death of logos #1

By , April 2, 2009

The warmer weather of the last few weeks means that I’ve resumed my lunchtime explorations of Mount Pleasant Cemetery. One thing I’ve been noticing is that some people’s monuments are marked by the logos or wordmarks of the companies they ran, owned, or founded. The first example is W. Garfield Weston, son of eponymous company founder George Weston.

    One of my favourites is the Chalmers tire near the main office. The founder of Chalmers Suspensions is buried there.
