Here's another 12.47kV/4.16kV substation, this time in the city of Prichard. Although it may be hard to see in this picture, the pole to the right has 6 glass insulators on its arm.

Kind of surprising they are running that off 12.5 kV.

A lot of these subs originally ran off of 46kV, but in some cities (such as the Mobile/Prichard area), much of the 46kV was ditched in favor of 115kV transmission, with the old lines being re-purposed as 12.47kV "express" feeders.
