These pylons for example, look high but maybe not very high... simplified lattice tower depiction is very stylish, and insulators are drawn clearly

Hi Tomoko,
certainly start a new thread on Pylons (Transmission Towers) on stamps
or whatever you deem fitting for the title.


What is a Pylon?

You may wish to rent / buy a DVD I would highly recommend
"Woman at War"

PS: Lovely Swedish stamp with the Pylon

"Woman at War"

The opening of trailer shot is beautiful (and I stopped to view further as I am willing to watch the full film shortly!). I subscribe MUBI and it seems on its distribute. Concerning about environmental issue - yes pylons are a kind of symbols of aggressive industry, isn't it. Also by scenic point of view, this might be a mess for some people...?

Hi Tomoko,
I do not see it as that, they have brought untold benefits to us as a species,
in the past, but times are rapidly changing, and we now need to adapt / reassess.

Our new Prime minister, is a few days old, and a fabulous illustration of a vibrant democracy, we kicked out the previous pretender, who had the temerity to call us West Australians "Cave people"

Once again, I have become a proud Australian, where democracy
have provided a change for the better, driven in a large part by the female vote
Climate change (hopefully) will now have a strong voice in our future decisions.

Our new Prime minister is now in Tokyo as we speak.

I would agree with you totally, Rod.

A re-direction towards less hight and footprint version of tower "T-pylon" was mentioned in the article in "what is pylon". I think there are tendencies for "less aggressive" and very interesting style to move ahead, but somehow less attractive for me. They are not build in real yet, but when they appear on the ground, I have to go and see, to analyse what elements of conventional/historical pylon appeals to me...

Your new prime minister - I have read about him - only yesterday he started! I read the history of prime ministers in Australia and learnt that Labour politicians formed a government as early as 1904. Still a lot to learn about the world!!!

When still the pylon, electric lines, cogwheel and smoking chimneys were the forefront of a country, everywhere in the world... or already at a turning era elsewhere, maybe?

That is really true - we could never talked over SC forum without the history of pylons and insulators, and with our current wired environment...

Nice additions, Tomoko,
I am surprised you still find them.

I have just catalogued 250 Russian "swaps"
there may be a couple of new ones there,
I'll have to check the previous posts first.

Great... thank you Rod for the collection of all shown on this thread. This is a rare treat! and I would follow the manner when I start a new topic.

And the Russian insulator from as early as 1936! Lovely one, and it shows that vandals were already then. I can't wait to watch the film Woman at War, which is coming soon on MUBI.

Here is another from Nordic area, I believe that those simplified bars hang from lattice arms are insulators

Sweden
20 January 1959 / 50th Anniversary of Swedish State Power Board / design: L. Gram, engrave: A. Wallhorn

I have found a wonderful musing, that transfers to Philately.

"Do you collect for the cash value ?
Or the value of experience it brings to your life"


We need to see some of Tomoko's beautiful collection

Telegraph / Electricity Pylons
How we pay for them

As Australians digested the news this week that benchmark electricity prices are set to rise by as much as 18 per cent, Bruce Mountain had a worrying thought.
While the headline numbers looked bad, he reckoned the reality was likely to be far worse.
"It's quite possibly disastrous for customers," Mr Mountain said.
"It really is a tough issue now for governments and there is no magic wand here."
