Cemetery Curiosities

Challenge #7 in the Eclectic series. Hosted by Ro13.
Challenge has finished
To the disappointment of many....the mysterious stranger that leaves half a bottle of Cognac and Roses at Edgar Allan Poe's gravesite did not show this year. This challenge is about what was left behind...the remnants of what was an intimate time shared with a loved one, that remains a mystery to anyone else who happens by...in this case, the cognac and roses. Children's toys, a six pack of beer, a book...NOT your usual funerary flowers or flags. If you stop in your tracks and have to wonder "who?" or "why?" then you've got the right idea...see the example and description of the example below. PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL OF THE ITEMS AND DO NOT REARRANGE OR ALTER THEM IN ANY WAY

Found this grave in the cemetery on top of the hill that overlooks Dawson City in the Yukon Territory. According to the headstone Mr. Welzl died in 1948 and 57 years later someone still cares enough to keep the shoes polished, the pitcher clean, and the mementos laid carefully on the crossbar of the cross.
