  3. Sorry no photo. Today at Heeley City Farm Repair Cafe I was talking with SH member andy1702, along came a local lady who asked if Calvin or himself would have any information regarding a named oblong (star pattern) drain cover that she had found within the area of her property in Heeley. There did not seem to be any info regarding a "Wm Bush" in their book Drainspotting, or in this topic, so I had a look through the directories. Bush Wm. mason and bricklayer, 47 Radford Place, White's directory, 1879. Bush Wm. & Sons Ltd. builders, 97 Gell Street, Kelly's directory, 1925.
