Here's an ancient pole on this 69kV line, with assorted replacement insulators. The green insulator on the right is a giant two-parter and was made by Westinghouse, probably in the 1920s or 1930s. The larger brown insulators are three-parters.

If you like these green Westinhouse insulators, I'd say that Idaho would be the place to find them! Two poles with them have been spotted there by linegeeks to date.
