A couple of years ago before the first tribute album to Jandek on
Summersteps, They had contacted Jandek about photos for the now infamous
cover. They had two roles of film come back in the mail consisting of a ton
of indistinct photographs from an unknown cemetery
that is the address to look at the nine pages of photos....
well it has since been determined that the pics were taken at Glenwood
Cemetery right in houston
anyway to make a long story short I went to findagrave.com and searched
through 556 entries for interments.. Looked through all the graves that had
photos and was able to come up with two major matches.
on page two There is a statue of a womanly figure surrounded by a really
short brick wall covered in ivy and with pillars all around it.. through
searching I have determined that to be a seperate area of the cemetery
dedicated to the Boughton and Sharp families.
Delia Frost Boughton
Estelle Boughton Sharp
Patty Lumis Sharp
Walter Bedford Sharp
Walter Benona Sharp.
and on page five in the distance you can see a very tall statue of what
looks to be an oldschool fireman.
And it is
Upon further inspection I found it is a monument to fireman of the olden
days. Men that have lost their lives in the fight to save fire victims.
There is the big monument and it is surrounded by smaller headstones of
these fine firemen
among others that are indecipherable
I hope you all enjoyed this little sleuthing escapade of mine..
check out the pics they show that Jandek does still have a unique knack for
