Lawrence Iron Works

Lawrence KS Walkabout - August 23, 2008

17th and Rhode Island?

 

Lawrence Iron Works was one of several manufacturing companies created by Justin De Witt Bowersock. These businesses sprung from Bowersock being allowed to dam the Kansas river in order to generate electricity. He was also a congressman for four terms (1899-1907).

 

And his company made cool manhole covers!

    and you made a very nice picture of it! Realy like it. Especially the old manhole covers can sometimes be very interesting pieces of work.

    I love that way you made something ordinary look very interesting. The sign of a great photographer

    Thank you for the comments! It helped that the cover had a sweet pattern forged into it to begin with. :D
