Wooden Headboard

This is a old wooden headboard from the Sacramento Cemetery. It is circa 1876. At one time wood headboards were plentiful in this cemetery.
This is the first time I have seen a real one. There were some in the Salt Lake Cemetery but they looked like reproductions. This is REAL.
It belongs to Sophie K. Meiss. Her death date is listed as June 30, 1876.

I've never seen one of those "live." Cool!
