The Chicago Sewers: Irving Park Tunnel (Gallery 12)

Note: this gallery may merge with Irving_Park_manhole.html.

May 15, 2009, 1:07 a.m. Right between the 2 trees, and in between the smaller trees, is where the manhole lid is. This is Irving Park and Hamilton.

1:08 a.m.

1:13 a.m.

1:14 a.m.

1:15 a.m.

1:16 a.m.

This is right in front of me.

This is behind me, looking down.

So I turned left, facing west.

1:17 a.m. This is west.

And this is east.

This is west, bending down.

Sorry dudes, but this is as low as I could go.

And this is east.

After I left and closing the lid, I accidentally crushed my outer knuckles with that 120-125 pound manhole lid while trying to cover it. And then it started bleeding. :(
