A Manhole in Toronto

Manhole Cover in Toronto | PHoto by Alley Roots
At Alley Roots we believe that manholes are gateways for unexplored parts of the city, doors that have access to secret paths connecting East and West, South and North.

At Alley Roots we believe that manholes are beautiful with their dents and uneven structures, with their lives and their stories. Inspired by one of the most stepped on, consumed, and lived manhole in Toronto, Alley Roots created the Manhole design.  The Manhole design has been created faithfully tracing the shape and pattern of a manhole discovered in the ever rising Junction neighbourhood of Toronto. As the manhole, this design is unique and Toronto and its habitants.

Inspired by a Toronto’s Manhole, Designed by Alley Roots.
