It’s Manhole Monday and today is all about communication. Big thanks to Sean Duran for sharing his picture taken in Gothenburg, Sweden. Rikstelefon is Swedish for Nationwide Telephone. I love the illustration of the crown and star, and especially the lightening bolts. I feel like the telephone covers I have come across here in the States, while interesting on their own, pale in comparison. The pattern that circles the middle of the cover taken in San Antonio is pretty neat but I can’t help but feel let down, especially when looking at these side by side. See any interesting manhole covers in your city? Take a picture and tweet them to me @nikki_vz or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org to be featured in an upcoming post!
