"You absolute sewer!"
From the Burns Brothers Catalogue, 1959.
Only indirectly hauntological, I suppose. Metal drain covers remind me of childhood for some bizarre reason - possibly a passing fascination with 'em during the walk to school. Mysterious street furniture with authority built in. See also: concrete fire hydrant signs with their mysterious code numbers, and those green or grey metal boxes full of telephone wires.
