Manhole Covers of Quebec City

Quebec Month / Installment 13

Underfoot and mostly unnoticed as we trek to our destinations, manhole covers rest snugly in their circular grade-level perches all around Quebec City.  With their spare adornment, they are immovable except with great effort, securely guarding their underground treasures of utility.

  4. I remember seeing 2 large men to remove one. It wasn’t one of those Y shaped implements, it was a really large, thick cover. That’s an idea for a work-out. Have people locate manholes and take them off with the old-fashioned hooks once used to lift them Then run from the police when they hear the sirens. 😀
