Old Utility Poles – Tecumseh Road East

First off, this post was supposed to appear on Friday. It wasn’t until late Saturday afternoon before I realized that I hadn’t scheduled it properly… So.. I’m sorry to everyone who came by on Friday and ended up seeing nothing new…

Now on to the post…

One of my favourite little bits of history are these utility poles along Tecumseh Road East. You’ll find them between Howard and Ouellette, mostly on the north side of the street.

Some are in better shape than others, but they’re very cool, and they all feature a little pineapple finial on the top. They all date back to about the mid 1920s.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.
