Bell System

I found this fancy, old Bell System "man hole cover" by the police station in Prescott. 
I wonder what the politically correct name for this lid is now.

This man hole certainly got sealed! LOL

It looks like some sort of ancient emblem though

We have a friend who takes man hole cover photos whenever he sees a creative design. Person hole covers seems to cumbersome. What would Ma Bell do?

Hell's bells, what's a system to do? We'll let the ding-a-lings figure out the pc thing to do! OK?

Hope you're having a good weekend!

"Human entrance for underground wiring"......nah that won't work either. This is a classic.

Dave's comment got me to thinking that there are a lot of interesting things out there to focus taking pictures on...kinda like being a collector. I'll pass on trying to guess a new name, but had to laugh at Sharon's. :)

Underground access entrance?

Hmmm. Maybe they should call it a -- manhole cover ??? After all, some things never change.

It's been awhile since I've seen one of these Bell ones.

Ma Bell is now a relic, a thing of the past!
