They're getting pretty tough to find nowadays.

Did you also notice the old street light on the bent bracket?

That's nice! And original. A prototype distribution line when they moved from 4.8?

I think it's an early 13.8kV line that served an industrial facility. CL&P tapped a lot of the big factories and things directly off of the 13.8 delta systems back in the day.

This pole, though, is one of my all time favorite CL&P survivors. It's really a pole that time forgot!
