Neverwhere

Monument to Henry (1834-1897) and Helen (1835-1915) Likly and family in Mount Hope Cemetery, 1133 Mount Hope Avenue, Rochester, Monroe County, New York. Henry, Canadian by birth, was a leather maker who co-founded Henry Likly & Co. (which became simply Likly’s in 1925). He sold leather suitcases, trunks, handbags, and other items.

Mount Hope Cemetery, adjacent to the University of Rochester, was founded in 1838 as a municipal rural cemetery and sprawls over 196 acres. More than 350,000 former residents are interred there, including abolitionist Frederick Douglass, suffragette Susan B. Anthony, and city founder Nathaniel Rochester.
