New Haven again

Even New Haven’s rubbish bins are in the Ivy League. There can’t be too many places in the US that have Latin on the bins. In this case, it’s the seal of New Haven:

sigill. civitat. novi. port. in repub. connecticutensi. 1784
seal of the city of New Haven in the Republic of Connecticut, 1784.

Cool.

(The recycling bins are somewhat less well-educated; they simply report “because it all adds up”)
