Looking through my large collection of vintage postcards of the cemetery, I came across a a 1930s postcard showing Rin Tin Tin's grave. The memorial plaque rests upon an imposing tomb. I wonder if it was lifted there by the photographer from a less imposing grave plot? Certainly, a mystery still to be solved as I have yet to discover another image of the dog's original grave plot in the cemetery.
Today, the grave is marked by a granite memorial that is often adorned by flowers and other tokens left by frequent well-wishers. I can find no record of when today's memorial replaced the original. To see a photograph of the current tomb, click HERE.
