Funeral Traffic Control

1948: Chicago's Mt. Carmel cemetery sought FCC approval so that it could operate a two-way radio system to direct funeral processions, so as to avoid traffic jams in the cemetery.

I wonder if they had to build a traffic control tower as well?

Wow apparently Catholics were dropping like flies in Chicago in the '40's.

Death must be a profitable business.
In my teens I was looking through the want ads in the newspaper and came across a job at Forrest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, CA. The were paying $11.75/hr for a body washer. Good money at the time (1974), but I couldn't get past having to deal with the clientele.
