Monuments come in various kinds. There are the natural ones, which have then been used to commemorate something built by people, such as this rock outcrop near Clarens in the Free State (Golden Gate area) which has been dubbed The Titanic.
Then there are the ones represented by old and venerable buildings, such as the City Hall in Cape Town, seen here on the occasion of a Symphony Concert.
A third category is represented by gravestones, tombstones, and monuments to the deceased. This, of one of my Great Great Grandfathers in Sussex, England, was part of a discovery which opened up a lot of my background, including where the heck one of my names had come from.
