Telephone Pole Numbers

By EddieAC    
After searching for a subject I remembered that I had seen numbers engraved in telephone poles so I decided to photograph these for this weeks theme.

There were much better poles around the area but I liked this one which is situated only a few yards from my house as there is a nice hedge just behind it for a background.

Apparently the horizontal line is the "Doby mark" which means 3m from the bottom of the pole and 1.1m from ground level. It was preserved in Creosote in 2014 and the "21" is the code of the wood yard that the pole came from.

Until this challenge I would never have known that there is a whole Telephone pole appreciation society online. Smile
