You're right,also porcelain insulators were dark in color,not white and grey as they normally are now,thanks to Ladybird Johnson.

She had this "agenda" for beautifying various aspects of the environment and skyline which included having insulators/transformers and such be a light color so as not to "impose" upon the blue/gray sky so much.

Any chance this is why GE made grey cobraheads?

I also think vines do beautify poles big time, God's work & art

I saw a pocket of Form 109s in downtown San Diego last nite, Henry (Dimbulb) took me there. They are awesome lights and the light distribiton is smoother than just about anything made today!

I found a few 109's in Planview Texas using Google Maps. There is a street with a couple of blocks of mostly Form 109's

Is that actually Cam'ron, spelled like the rapper CAM'RON's name? I have never actually seen a Form 109 in person. During what era were they popular? (1950s?)

@ Devonte: so this is what you look like!
