p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Manhole Covers--Open Thread


We drive over these things daily and never really look at them, but some manhole covers actually have nice designs. In my city when streets get repaved the old, plain covers are replaced with new ones that have a nice, artsy design on them. I thought it might be interesting to see what the covers look like in other cities around the globe, so please feel free to add yours to this thread.
Cheers,
Brent

I like the Boston version. It has a very old look to it. Nice toning.
Cheers,

I love how there's a "B W" stamped into the design. Presumably that's for "Boston Water?"

I think the new design is an improvement over the old one! It will be interesting to see something from outside the US. I'm sure there will be a novel approach to it!

What a great project Brent!
Never really gave them a thought as a project. I was used to detailing people to ensure that they were all sealed at Inauguration time for safety.

Again well done Brent and ALL!!!!!!
Dan



Thanks, Dan. That inauguration day isn't all that far off and I'm already sick of hearing the candidates (all of them). Maybe you should direct the parking to New Jersey.
Show me your manhole covers.

Cheers,
Brent

I'm thinking maybe this idea was a little too "camera clubby."

Very nice, Jon. I was actually hoping somebody would post one from Europe showing cobblestone around the cover. This will do nicely.
Cheers,

I like this! The texture really jumps out. I thought it was actually kind of funny that they imprint "DRAIN" on it, as if nobody would otherwise know. 😁 I wonder if there are any that say, "MANHOLE COVER."
Cheers,
Brent

These are great, and something else to look out for! I tend to focus on landscape stuff when i'm on vacation and overlook things like this until it's too late. Excellent in B&W as well!!

Yes very well done and the fact that the covers help the texture makes them better. Nice work!
