CL&P 7.97kV - Brookfield, CT
Here's another pole on this line with the old Lapp insulators on the neutral. I do wonder if CL&P hired the same contractor to do this line as the old Danbury & Bethel Gas & Electric Light company did.

These old Lapps used to be pretty common on the old 4.8kV distribution grid in the Danbury area. They were used by the long defunct Danbury & Bethel Gas & Electric Light Co, which CL&P bought out in 1944 if I remember right. Although what's odd here is the fact that these poles are in original CL&P territory. Must be either really old mutual aid or some contractor job.
