A blog commemorating the unique fusion of form and function of UK coal hole covers - Victorian urban street art at its finest.

Maunsell Street, London SW1
Three fine covers from around the corner of the august Royal Horticultural Society in the quiet backstreets of Westminster. I particularly like the Haywards concentric circles. The floral design is from Burt and Potts of Westminster and the one split into quarters is a Luxfer Prisms, from 16 Hill Street, London EC. Unfortunately, the glass prisms have been replaced by concrete.
