Rusty water and gas

Water utility cover

Bingham Taylor gas utility cover

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.
