Pacificorp 12.47kV - Butte County, ID
Here is a replacement corner pole on a VERY OLD 69kV line that was erected in the late 1900s. It is run on single-strand copper wire, and features many different types of early multipart insulators. The pole you see here is probably a 1920s replacement, judging by the presence of Ohio Brass Baum Patent disks.

This is likely one of the oldest power lines that still sees service in the entire nation, now being used as a 7.2/12.47kV distribution feeder.
