Ferrum Lwow Sidewalk Stamps in Lviv

The pre-WWII company Ferrum Lwow not only made manhole covers and storm drains but also manufactured and/or laid cement sidewalks. The stamps served as an identification and advertisement.

  1. Believe it or not, I've never seen them :) I guess I should look under my feet more carefully while walking around the city. Where do you find them?

    1. There aren't that many of them, so these particular ones are hard to find. One was on Pr. Svobody (I'm not even sure if it's still there though), but I don't remembe where I found the rest...
