Installed in the sidewalk beneath our feet, these cast iron utility covers are located in an area of a re-purposed site that has almost no foot traffic. The lack of sole buffing has allowed them to acquire a patina of iron oxide.
The manufacturer of the WATER cover is not known. The GAS cover is made by Bingham & Taylor; however the cover does not include the "&" or "and" that usually seen as part of their name on their covers.
The bridge across the river carried a railroad spur to the factory building. On one side, the former factories have been re-purposed for offices, and and there is planned re-purposement on the other. Still, the river flows and greenery grows.
