Well, there I was smugly satisfied that I personally had already bagged the world’s smallest telegraph pole back in June of this year. And then along comes telegraph pole connoisseur, Graeme Fisher, from Stourbridge with these absolute gems. These, he tells me, can be found at the Cable and Wireless Telegraph Museum at Porthcurno.
They’re so sweet they make you (me anyway) say “aw bless!”. Look, they’ve even got the proper cable tie-offs on the insulators – you just don’t see that anymore.
Anyway, thank you Graeme. You can expect more gems from our telegraphic cognoscentic correspondent in the coming weeks. I know that because I’ve already got the pictures.
