The guy in front of the Firestone store didn't pay much attention to the "keep to the right" signs! :-)

Electrical power lines on the left, Telephone lines on the right.

Home-brewed telephone on the far left going down side street. Power is
denoted by the shorter crossarms and details like transformers and streetlights.
The lighter construction with many insulators, typically on ten-pin arms as
seen here, denote telephone built to AM TEL Long Lines standards after
1888. The line on the right is a very typical openwire telephone mainline
built to these standards. Prior to the AM TEL standardization, telephone lines
typically looked like the line on the far left. Independents and "farmer lines"
often retained this crude construction method/look until the very end of openwire
use.
