A fascinating journey: 10 years of manhole cover photography from our community, 8 July 2024 by Sara Santamaria:

Documenting a manhole cover has become an essential part of the community’s trips and outings. Over the years, some members have developed an affinity for certain covers that they consider particularly representative. Mentxu Ramilo, for example, found a 1925 manhole cover in Vitoria-Gasteiz that she found fascinating. “I let myself be infected by the Wikimedian spirit and passions, and by everything that forms part of the graphic heritage and deserves to be documented,” explains Mentxu.

I think we of WikiClubWest are going to have to up our game of cataloguing of all the street things! :-)
