The Tunnels Under Our Feet
Tracy Beach "Tunnels under Our Feet"
Have you ever seen a manhole cover with little glass circles in it and wondered why it was different from the others? Did you know that there were actually tunnels under the sidewalks and those manhole covers imbedded with glass circles allowed light into the tunnels below?
Underground hollow sidewalks and vaults had many uses when they were first installed in the late 1800s. Vaults allowed businesses to expand and utilize the unused spaces
