Dangerous Manhole Covers of New York



This photo is the Sepia Saturday prompt this week. We bloggers try to follow the theme, in some vague way, as a seed in our thoughts. Sepia Saturday provides bloggers with an opportunity to share their history through the medium of photographs. Historical photographs of any age or kind become the launchpad for explorations of family history, local history and social history in fact or fiction, poetry or prose, words or further images. Click here to learn more.

A chic young dame of New York
In the rain she loved to walk
Only the China-man knew
That one spark from her shoe
Would blow the damp dame to chalk
