Lets have a parade for one of the most important dates in Lightning Rod Insulator history. On Feb. 5, 1850 James Spratt of Cincinnati Ohio was issued Patent No. 7076 for "Improvement in Attachments for Lightning Conductors". See

This parade shows most of the styles, with the exception of the Micro-Spratt and color variants.

PARTY ON, it's a parade day :)
