Jumbo McGinnis' Grave
I really did just kind of accidently stumble upon these photos.
Jumbo McGinnis died on May 18, 1934 and is buried at Calvary Cemetery in St. Louis. The grave photo was taken by the incomparable Connie Nisinger. I've never had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Nisinger but I'm a huge fan. Her work documenting the graves of historical figures is just extraordinary.
