Chapman Tomb, Recoleta Cemetery

Chapman Tomb, Recolata Cemetry

I presume that this tomb in Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires was originally built for Elisa Chapman since her name appears so promenently above the door.

Chapman Tomb, Recolata CemetryThe Art Deco plaque above Elisa's name, however, relates to Lieutenant Jorge Chapman who was associated with the Military Aviation School but unfortunately died in a plane crash fulfilling his duties on 19 March 1925.
