Louisville Coal Hole Cover, 2 of 3

Founded in 1849 by the Snead family, Snead & Co. Iron Works manufactured decorative and architectural cast iron throughout Louisville. Many buildings throughout the city still display iron work by Snead & Co., particularly on Main Street. There are also a great amount of manhole covers that bear the company’s name. This particular coal hole cover was just down the street from the original foundry which made doing this print all the greater.

Original Artwork made directly from a utility cover in Louisville, KY.
