Pavement Jewellery

Along Cowley Road, looked for pavement jewellery and saw about half of the ingots. The busy pavements are adorned with little bronze plaques, which caused me to frequently get in the way of people as I looked for them. "Saving one starfish makes a difference" one said. Others had bees, question marks, rollerskates with wings, and one said "No more blood".

There's also a puzzle in it somewhere, but I didn't have much idea of what that was about.

More details and a map of where they are

Photos of most of the pavement jewellery

It felt odd scanning the pavements for the pavement jewellery, almost like working, where I spend my time scouring software for bugs. The opposite of jewels, I suppose, but still somehow like hidden treasures to be found.

After that I ate pistachio ice-cream at G&Ds and met up with eldritchreality. We then went to the Pink Giraffe and I ate butterfly crackers and tofu in Pink Giraffe sauce, and a fortune cookie told me to make time for myself, or something like that.

There is a Women's Movement one which I think is fab.

This one?

Votes for Women

I don't think I saw that one. I only saw about half of them as when I printed a version of the map it actually only printed half the map! Will look for the rest sometime though probably.

Cool! I will have to look out for it.

Very cool!
There are similar pavement bits in Cambridge but they are all identical (or at least very similar) and I have no idea why.

They have a slightly darker meaning. Each bronze plaque/'rosette' in the pavements of the northern end of Cambridge city centre marks the death of a person on the streets of Cambridge (since a certian date - unknown to me).
