Overlooked and betrodden, our city's manhole covers don't exactly make the front cover of anything.

But they tell a story, each and every one of them. Who made them, when they were made, what they are for.

Oh and that mysterious arrow shape, what's it all about?

Well, this shape, known as a “Chicken Foot Mark”, meant it had been directly purchased by the Government Supplies Management Division before changing to public contractors in the late 1990s.

So it's a pre-handover mark you might say.
