Do you have a shot of that transformer pole in the back?

No close-ups unfortunately. I drive by these poles a few times every year though, so I'll be able to get at them another time.

Wonder if this is the prototype style of the clamp-brace arm?

I'd say it's an earlier version, with a bolt going through the center of the arm rather than a bracket surrounding it and clamping it to the pole. I think the clamp braces are designed for the hollow fiberglass arms rather than the solid wooden ones.

These crossarm brackets have been around for a long time though--I've seen them on installations over 85 years old (by today).
