Lime Tape


Usually, the tape used to attached the WET PAINT signs is blue or yellowish masking tape.  This lime green tape went well with the red lettering, making for a watermelon feel.

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.

River reverie

Wriver wrevere-ee

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.
