Into the gutter, down the drain

Into the gutter
Street drains were always a terrible irritation to me as a kid. We use to play games in the street and it seemed like drains were huge ball-magnets with the power to draw tennis or cricket balls quicker than a boy's legs could carry him.

Fortunately it looks as though these drains have a bar to prevent such objects finding themselves meters below the ground in the storm-water drainage system. :)
