a trip to Mir in 1922, Fanny Gorodeisky and her mother,
visit the grave of Fanny's grandfather (?) Aharon

excellent photo taken in the cemetery in Mir shows
all the vegetation and several of the old tombstones.
It looks to be the same era as the cemetery photos
on Mir photos page 2. This
is the same area that is now enclosed by wall and
gate Mir 2001.
