Here's another early replacement 69kV pole, with two-piece multiparts on wooden pins. Probably dates to the 1920s.

Here's a close-up of the crossarm construction on a similar pole:

It sure is amazing how long those wooden pins will stand up when they stick a bolt/screw through them.

The corner pole next to this one also features some Ohio Brass Baum Patent disks:

Are those numbers written on the mountain in the back?

Yup. Seems the mountainside is a popular place for graffiti as many people can see it from the highway.

Kenmare High School had a tradition where each graduating class would gather some rocks, paint them white, then arrange them on a hillside as a marker for that year. You can see them along the sides of the hills to the south and west.
