Here we have some old High Tension poles or Distribution Towers as they are sometimes called, along Diamond Avenue in Hazleton.  

The one pole had three arms and the other had four arms.  It looks like these poles were from two seperate pole lines... it looks like later the lines were run in this way.  These are the only two poles like this in the general area.   The pole with the three arms has strain type inslators on it .... the one with the four arms has large ceramic insulators on the top.   The current lines connect to standard wooden poles at either end. 

The pole with four arms has pins in it to accept a more insulators and clips in the sides of the arms that looks like more wires could have been connected to it. 

It is very interesting layout for a High Tension pole.
