Here's a pole with one of Gulf Power's odd "alley" brackets. Never seen any other utility use them.

It's an odd design, isn't it? I'll have to show you a few more poles I know of that use this bracket in different ways.

I thought you would've liked these wacky metal brackets! I always got a kick out of them. I'll have to post some more photos of them sometimes--they look very interesting when the lowermost phase is suspended on glass disks and the upper phases don't use those darnded fiberglass pins.

It's an interesting bracket to be sure... but it don't look so great with that clamp-brace arm just under it.
