CP 13.2kV - North Canaan, CT
Here's another pole on the old 13.2kV line from CP. I could only find three poles like this one here, but I've got no doubt this is a VERY old line. I suspect it was originally a short branch off of a transmission line (there has been 13.2kV transmission in this area since before 1914) that was put up to feed a mine.

I'm going to go back to this line and do some more in-depth investigating sometime soon. I've got a hunch that this could be part of the original 13.2kV transmission system that dates back to the 1910's. I also found another ancient 13.2kV line (with a shield wire!) that could be original as well.

This is also in the same general vicinity as these old towers:

I strongly suspect that this line was connected to one of the original four 13.2kV circuits that graced those towers.

Bizarre considering the wide braces with the old wood pegs on the arm.
