Zinkers
A Virtual Cemetery created by: BKGenie
Description: Zinkers are hollow-metal markers made from zinc that are a bluish-gray color and are also known as white bronze gravestones. All zinc cemetery monuments were made by the Monumental Bronze Company of Bridgeport, CT, between 1874 and 1914. They are in cemeteries of the period all across the U. S. and Canada. They were sold as more durable than marble, about 1/3 less expensive and progressive. These markers were made in the same shapes and styles as marble and granite monuments. Each of the four sides was separately cast, and in the case of very tall monuments there would be several castings to each side. The cheapest (about $6 in the 1890s) was a single cast tablet. Zinc resists corrosion thus the castings are still sharp and clear today.
