St. Paul Lutheran Cemetery

I took this photograph of the St. Paul Lutheran Cemetery on Harms Road in Skokie this morning during my run today. A century ago, like many of Chicago's northern suburbs, Skokie, then known as Niles Center, was populated mainly by German-Americans. Many of the tombstones in this cemetery, as well as the United Church of Christ cemetery across the street, have engravings in German.
