View in Mount Calvary Cemetery,
Mount Calvary’s central layout takes the form of a cross, of which the base, shown in the postcard, is the Pizzini family plot.
Captain Andrew Pizzini was in the VMI Class of 1865 and participated in the Battle of New Market. After the war, he was president of Richmond’s Electrical Street Railways Light and Power Companies and was a leading proponent of the (then) New City Hall.
The Father Time statue that watches over Captain Pizzini has seen better days and seems to have lost the crutch on which he leaned.
