MANHOLE COVER LOVERS

There must be billions of them in the world. We pass them every day. We walk on them. We do not take any notice of them. They are heavy, and usually made of cast iron. They come in many different shapes, sizes and patterns. Look, and you will find them everywhere.

What are they? MANHOLE COVERS, that provide access to local service systems such as water, electricity, gas, and telecommunications.

Post photos of any interesting ones you find here.

Most gas lines have now been placed under the cement tile of the sidewalks and not under the street pavements:

remember in Greek "P" is "R" :-)

Here is a rare metal cover for natural gas lines:

AEPIO is Greek said: "AERIO" = GAS

Thanks Katerina. The shoe is a bonus! Don't, whatever you do, get run-over while Covering-ing. Val

Mellow yellow heavy metal...

Duh...the photos was taken on Sunday, when there are no cars on the city streets, as everyone goes to the seaside for the weekend now that we are "open". The circle sewer manhole covers in Thessaloniki are the same design, and most are stamped with a date as to the year they were placed on the road:

here is a 1995 one (at the corner of my street)
