Here's a funky old pole on a former 23kV line.

I've been wondering for quite a while when these poles must've gone up. They use a pretty early style of ridge pin, but the multipart insulators don't look like they could be earlier than 1925. What would you think?

They could have replaced lilyshell types or the M-3060 class that had cement growth problems

That could be. A lot of these poles survived mostly intact, but they were well-built too with those steel arms.
