Link to introductory page

Central America is rather a disappointment for the manhole afficionado. Many of the covers are in concrete with any inscription stamped or inscribed manually. This is particularly true in Guatemala. In Mexico many of the covers noted proved to be for electricity supplies. The abbreviation CFE stands for Comision Federal de Electricidad.
