Jim Colburn's superb collection of lightning rod insulators was amassed over 25 years of collecting. Jim lives in Florida (presently, a vast wasteland of ugly insulators) so I assume most of these beauties came from elsewhere. Top 5 and 1/2 rows are side tab types including: Hickock's, Spratt Patent, J.H. Weston, etc. Row 6-- the right seven are spools, and all of the lower shelves are also spool types. Some miscellaneous LRI sitting on the wood shelf in front of the lower shelf.
