Wait, I thought this was an international web site. Where, oh where, are the American storm drains? The Asian storm drains? The African storm drains? Sigh...

Gorgeous. I wish they'd been a little less Hollywood with the lighting, and paid more attention to the texture of the stone and masonry, but still, very, very nice. Thanks!

Nice post. It is posts like these why I was attracted to, and continue to visit Metafilter, those who enjoy them can have the 100+ comment shitstorms.

of course, those shitstorms can sometimes be entertaining to read

Harry Lime's drain (with tribute to Orson Welles)

Cute, just watched The Third Man last night. Oh, this sign must be the European icon for "fugitive racketeer fleeing into sewers" ...

The task of looking at so photos of many sewers... it's, urm, draining.

I want to see, but there is no bandwidth. Alas. Hellas.
