This is an interesting setup with iron wire dead ended on double arm configuration, wrapped only once around the dead end, and the loose end spliced in a sleeve to itself, then an insulated drop wire twisted onto iron conductor. I am assuming at one time this line continued, but was dead ended in later years. It's neat to see iron on newer glass, too. This came from a railroad line.
