Manhole Monday: the circle and the square

pairHappy Manhole Monday! Today’s pairing are two drains from two different parts of the world. Big thanks to Jim Slagle and Mårten Thavenius for sharing their pictures. It never ceases to amaze me to see how different covers are from city to city around the world. It’s interesting to note that even with the difference in shape, language and 3D height, there is a hint of a resemblance in the line pattern. If you see an interesting manhole cover, please take a picture of it and tweet/instagram it to me @nikki_vz or email me at
