From the submitter:
In the down & out, post apocalyptic city of East St. Louis Illinois, anything metallic that is not welded in place is fair game for scrappers, including man-hole covers. The city, being without the financial means to replace the missing covers, inserts used tires in their place to alert drivers of the open holes littering the streets.
