Manhole Covers

Man-hole-covers are mostly overlooked but are in fact the only visible part of the under-ground network of services that we are only really aware of when things go wrong- eg a burst water main. In-convenient road works and resulting traffic delays from maintenance of power, telephone, gas, sewerage are every-day experiences for many city-dwellers.
These cast-iron covers are not rated as things of beauty, but are often informative. Companies who made fortunes out of these humble items when these services were planned and installed by the “city fathers”, many firms are long-gone but this historical evidence remains.
