Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every city made the usual eyesores beautiful? Philadelphia unveiled these lovely recycling trucks this year on Earth Day.

And, apparently Japan has the loveliest manholes in the world. These are just a few, but from what I have seen there are hundreds of unique covers. Talk about a random bit of beauty!

More on Japanese manhole covers here.

  1. I love the toile design on the truck– I must keep my eyes peeled for these in Philly. Thanks for sharing the manhole covers– they're lovely, and totally unexpected!
