W. Liberty Street

Stopped. Watched. icon

Cast iron drain covers and grates pulled and set along the curb on Liberty. Made by the East Jordon Iron Works. One sports a cast fish (maybe a lake trout) and the words, “Dump No Waste.” East Jordon Iron Works now calling itself EJ has been in business since 1883 in Oak Park, Mich. I could not find a date on the pieces I looked at, but I did take a nice rubbing of the fish.
