North of Limerick Road, a granite double portal culvert bridges an unknown stream.
When I say there are no insulators to find "in situ", it's because while the stumps are still there, the telegraph poles themselves have been removed. In New Hampshire, the poles lie where they fell, but I've yet to find a single telegraph pole in Maine on the Eastern. No idea what the reason might be.
As I was walking in the woods to photograph the stream crossing in the photo above, I happened to look down and saw a piece of green glass which I knew was the remains of a telegraph insulator. There were thousands of them on telegraph poles until they were cut down and the insulators taken by collectors or souvenir hunters. There are really none left to find "on location" so finding one in any shape is unusual. The question was, was it intact? It looked like it had been buried for many decades but when I pulled it out of the earth, I was pleased to see, barring a few minor chips, it was whole.
