Now, time for the 'Glass Insulator Pole'! This pole has its original crossarms with wooden pins, and two glass insulators on it. On the top arm is an old piece of aqua glass, and on the secondary arm is a later-generation Whitall Tatum 5.

While this picture may suggest it, there's an insulator on the other crossarm that's holding up the primary. Shows up better in this picture:
