The design here was 19th century utilitarian, Star, studs and in this case two rows of advertising. I would speculate that this cover is one of the earlier ones made by this foundry. Later ones see below have a more ornate flower as the central element, and seemingly stronger lettering.
Ths cover is on 126th St. between Adam Clayton Powell Blvd and Malcolm X Blvd in central Harlem. Others with similar designs have been spotted over the years on the Upper East Side in Manhattan and Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn.
