While technically, not in service, this International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 465 communications parade float, drawn by a team of horses, shows three poles with different crossarm mounted insulators: ponies and duplex pony insulators on the foreground crossarm, tolls on the middle crossarm and signals on the crossarm in the background. There are also some suspended street light fixtures and telephone switchboards on the float.

Note that the utility pole in service also has duplex pony insulators and sidepins.
