Dodge

My wife Kerry got a very cool shot of the tomb of the Dodge Brothers, Horace and John, who founded Dodge Motor Company. One of the most extravagent grave sites in Michigan, located in Woodlawn Cemetery in Detroit. Both Brothers died in 1920. Their widows sold their company in 1925. Despite being affiliated in business with some of the most powerful men in Detroit ( Ford, Olds, etc.) due to their crude and sometimes overly aggressive nature they were not easily accepted by Detroit's "Royalty".
