PHOTO 5 - MAUSOLEUM OF FREDERICK LAUER - Charles Evans Cemetery, Reading, Berks County, PA

Today's photo is the mausoleum of Reading Brewer Frederick Lauer. This mausoleum is one of the most unique I have ever seen. Perhaps Mr. Lauer was fascinated by Egyptian history? Very nice detail on the door and above the door. "F. Lauer" is inscribed above the door. There is a statue of Mr. Lauer in City Park in Reading just down from the Columbus statue on Perkiomen Avenue. For more information on Frederick Lauer and his life and statue, click here. Cheers!
