Wow, nice once from Sarajevo - thank you rod222!, it goes into my wish-box.

I am running out of close-up depiction of insulators, but still have several more in distance views...

...and still they come.

Tomon, if you SPECIALISE in the insulators thematic,
I am happy to send you my SARAJEVO cinderella.

I like to see stamps go to dedicated collections.

Very kind offer, rod222!!
- and I am not sure the definition of "SPECIALISE in"... Does that mean if I make panels presentation on the theme at a Philatelic Fair or some sort? I am not that devoted (yet), and just collecting on this Insulator theme because there are a lot of them which I like. I don't do through thematic collection, because I am fussy on design.

Still, very kind offer.. how about if I make a series of articles on my stamp design blog https://wellcentred.wordpress.com in the near future..?

Hi Tomoko,
no, just a relaxed approach, nothing special.

If you just keep an album especially for "Insulators on stamps"
then I am happy to donate.
Otherwise, I keep it for my "Slovenia Back of Book"

A thematic collection takes precedence, and I am happy to send.

My guess is Yes
Googling with text string "Insulators on Pylons"

Yes! super images on the bunch - thank you, Rod.
Some more far-away views often together with Pylons are in my Insulator album - in fact, there are a lot of "Pylon on Stamps".

History of the Telegraph Insulator.
(Unable to find an image of the very first? by William Fothergill Cooke) 1842

The Opening of the Electric Telegraph and Intelligence Department
The electric telegraph instrument had been originally patented in 1837 jointly by William Fothergill Cooke and Charles Wheatstone. In 1842 Cooke alone patented the insulators for the transmission system and was solely responsible for commercialization of the telegraph (Kieve 'Telegraph Industry' 42). He personally financed the pilot system from
Paddington to Slough and thence to Windsor (Cooke 214).

NEW MEDIA
The birth of telegraphic news in Britain
1847-68
Roger Neil Barton
----------------------
As time went on, networks of "open wire" telegraph lines, and later, telephone lines, were developed and built throughout the country, and these lines required the installation of insulators. Insulators were necessary by serving as a medium for attaching the wires to the poles, but much more importantly, they were required to help prevent electric current loss during transmission. The material, glass, is itself an insulator (not a "conductor" or "transformer" as insulators are often incorrectly labeled in antique malls and flea markets).

Thank you Rod for an educational reading. "Intelligence Department" in 1830s to 40s is really interesting.
It means that the insulators and postage stamps were born around the same time! I didn't notice that!!

Here is my new purchase by chance;

This is a nice one with a bit of mystery - is this pylon standing in the middle of the river? Maybe yes, that the river is so wide and not possible to support lines without one in the middle..?

USA
1 October 1968 / Arkansas river navigation opened

Interesting.
I doubt it is in the river, but I cannot find any reference as yet.
Thinking the river perhaps supplies electricity generation somewhere.

United States has NO pylons, in the world's top 10 highest.

Wow, this is insane to know how high they can be... I thought this one in Sweden might be very high, but only 127meters high and not comparable to those top 10!



I love this stamp below, showing one of these towers in Sweden, looking it up from the ground.

Thank you Rod for "Pylon of the Month" link as well , plenty of nice insulators images are there, too And tell me if the SCF already has a topic thread of Pylons? If not, I would start it to see more pylon stamps, which might be largely duplicated from this thread of the Insulators, though...
