Meeting long-lost sewers and their burial places
When you’re a sewer (or ‘sewist’ as some would like to call us), you have an affinity with others who sew, especially those who have passed. In my recent US travels I came across the burial places of many sewers 😉 You only have to look down to find them — they are scattered and memorialised in the streets of cities like New York and Boston! Here are some I found, and some other pieces of beauty seen when looking down…
