The myriad of cover designs always amaze me. And now friends and web viewers from around the world are contributing to my reference. Diane and Wayne Schoeffle, Solivita Friends, took a photo of a cover in Prague from the Czech Republic.
Mike Aronstein, a post card pen pal for National Post Card Week sent me the Santa Fe Sewer cover image. Stella White is a colleague in The National Association of Women Artists. The Sewer Cover she sent has a nautical theme, very appropriate for Florida in the USA.
La Bocca della Verita
(“the mouth of truth”) – circa 1st century – a marble drain cover,
probably portraying the pagan god Oceanus. It was placed in the portico of a church (S. Maria in Cosmedin) in the 17th century (possibly the oldest surviving manhole cover in the world?)) Mr. Mills explains his passion for manhole covers in a comment on the Set One Covers.
