Hi Rod.
The visual of crushing pylon is strong! Anti-pylon opinions must have been existed from the beginning of the pylon history, I guess. There are some law firm in the UK who are specialised into the area, offering helps to people whoes own land where the development is planned. And I guess laying cables underground cost more than the compensation to those land owners. Matter of "visual environment" is left alone, that is what the protest comes in.

Historical towns are often protected by law in Europe, and of course landscapes are precious commodity for many people. All large scale developments such as bridges, dams, railways and roads do bring both benefit and abrupt change of a familiar scenery. And pylons are the subject of health problems, too!! I have been looking at pylons and vintage insulators in scenic Cotswold this weekend and thinking about it, in fact.

This stamp (with tiny insulators between lines) is from 52 years ago, 2 massive national projects had to be promoted on the national stamp. Do we see a change of tide by issuing body and will see anti-pylon stamps in the future..?

I wasn't aware of it, but neither was I ever close to them.

I doubt it, postage stamps, in general, support positive themes, in Australia certainly.
I have witnessed complaints on wind turbines,
and, Telstra (our nationwide telco) intended to put up a microwave tower
just 200 or so feet from my front door, my vote of course was in the negative,
and the local citizens won.

I was excited to see a new and successful wave generator recently,
I hope that come to fruition.

That sounds good, as many countries are surrounded by ocean!

Here is one from the era whenl "expansion" was truly believed. Tiny group of insulators are found.

Nice addition, Eli - once our eyes are hooked on to a subject/impression of objects, there are more in your horizon... I found this in my "sorting soon" box recently, and learnt about this gentleman who was a part of early recognition of the "multi-ethnic" Australia.

Going back to a simple setting of a telegraph insulator pole, because I found a German toy from 1910s in an auto-jumble this weekend! I couldn't resist to buy this...
