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.

Thanks Bradford; Look at the DMC, Dull Men's Club (of which I am a member). One of their Topics is Manhole Covers. I am not sure that the DM ewist in cyberspace, but I suspect that would be too exciting for them.

It's among his uploaded photos (Cristian Sima, here on the IUOMA).  I just cleverly performed a "reposty", adding it here.

It would seem that taking photos of manhole covers is highly correlated to the type of person who'd collaborate with a group of other Mail Arters in cyberspace.

Thanks Bradord. For a bonus we get to see some Romanian toes. I must ask: why do you have a 13 year old photo of a Romanian Manhole Cover? Do tell;

Thank you Alan Brignull for this nice postcard.

I prefer mail art in my postal mailbox.

So if anyone wants to make some rubbings of the texture and make some postal artwork with it, then I'm eager to receive it ;-)

This picture was taken on a school campus, the same campus as the picture in the snow.
