Prospect Cemetery is different in some noteworthy ways from Mount Pleasant Cemetery, the burying ground that is a natural match for it in size and location. Mount Pleasant is arguably defined by graves of people of British background, sober monuments in stone towering above the lanes. Prospect Cemetery's graves are more multicultural, the graves of southern and eastern Europeans being especially prominent. My eye was caught especially by particular graves, of people of Portuguese background, which were tended to marvelously, bedecked with flowers and grave goods by people who cared.
