Clear Glass Pin Top Insulators As Street Light Circuits

Clear Glass Pin Top Insulators As Street Light Circuits


1930'-40's clear high voltage pin top insulators used as secondary street light circuits. Very difficult to find insulators in a classic example of improvising and building utility circuits.

Cool setup!

Like the green oxidation on the solid copper wire against the clear glass and blue sky!

There is a pole similar to this in Concord only the insulators aren’t clear I will get a photo soon.

Long live Mercury Vapor and Incandescent street lighting!

Those clear pin tops reminiscent of "in the field" engineering. LOL

Have no idea, I cannot see it. I see another original opening above the clamp on mast arm that was probably there and used when a light was installed.

Difficult to tell but it looks like a GE M-250 but what make and what year??? But again, the photo is way too fuzzy.
