If you have the book "Wood amongst the Wires" by Fred Padgett / Walter Ruedrich, you may be familiar with the photos taken at 17th / Connecticut in San Francisco where two crossarms carried the feeder cables around a corner and which sported three Anderson compositions, 8 cabletoop woodens, AND a round dome wooden. I decided to look at this corner in Google Maps' street view and see that the crossarms have apparently been replaced and that all 12 insulators have been replaced with four modern "sky yuk" porcelains!
