Water Valve Covers

Water Valve  Covers
'R & C' stands for Ross & Cromarty, which was the council covering the island until 1975.
The cover on the right also has 'W B', which stands for Water Board.
These are a bit over 12 inches square. Made of cast iron. On the right hand one you can see a lot of the frame in which the lid sits. The pavement surface isn't very good along there anymore.
I never noticed the stone in the 'keyhole' when I took the pic!
Needless to say, one was taken dry and the other on a very wet day!
They are both the same rusty colour, but the lighting conditions make them look very different.
