Well, there it is. The famous "trident" pole in perspective with its relatively normal brethren.

The lines in the back are part of WAPA's 230kV system; their 230/115/41.6 sub is a mile to the left.

That "P-3" fiberglass arm sure looks goofy!

Also looks like the line in the background is using delta-arrangement. Were there any old-looking poles there that you remember?

I think Tri-County Electric only goes as far back as the 1940s, so these would likely date back to that era. It COULD have been a special line for serving the State Hospital campus before WAPA built their substation a mile to the east.

Looks like P-3 specs are finally spreading out into new areas.
