A photo collection of twentieth century telegraph poles

OK. It’s not a collection and it’s nothing to do with the telegraph. However it is a photo, it almost dates from the late twentieth century and it is a pole. It’s a power pole to be exact. It was located on a campsite I recently visited and I rather liked the huge switch that can presumably be used to cut of all power to the nearby village.

I know. Pictures of poles are not that cool. I don’t care. It’s interesting to see how big a switch has to be even for a ‘baby’ pole like this.

Of course as a photographer I wish I’d remembered to take a shot without the pole. It would have been a good donor image for a sky replacement!
