Here is an ANCIENT 69kV corner pole with two-piece multiparts (replacment insulators). Also note the wooden blocks in between the crossarms.

Thanks! It sure would be odd seeing construction like this on 69kV today, wouldn't it?

Sure would. Seeing a pole like this for 69kv would definitely be something else, looks like some tight spacing for a pole like this to handle such a voltage.
