I discovered this beautiful bronze relief on the side of a monument in the Mount Wollaston Cemetery. The monument is inscribed with the following: "The International HCB&C Laborers' Union of America to D. D'Alessandro". After doing a little research, I learned that D.D'Alessandro was a AFL leader for "hod carriers" in 1920, and had an office listed at 25 School Street.
