Now here is a beautiful sight: 115 kV on Hewletts! Unfortunately, the number of early 115 kV transmission line with Hewlett suspension insulators has rapidly diminished in recent years. This one seems to have survived due to the old towers/insulators being preserved when the line was re-conductored onto modern aluminum wire.

At least they don't have to worry about the line dropping if a disk should fail!

Very true! Hard to beat a string of eight Hewletts for 115 kV transmission.
