Waterworks Plates

The companies that installed plumbing and sewers in Lviv attached plates on houses where such services were provided. A few of these plates, which state that the water pipes were installed in this building by such and such company, can still be found in Lviv, though, as usual, some of the remaining ones have been painted or plastered over.
