Collecting Glass Insulators

In the late 1960's and early 1970's glass insulators were being removed from telephone poles as advances in technology made them obsolete. As linemen were taking down the old lines, they started to notice the multitude of bright colors, company names, variety of shapes, and important historical position held by insulators in the expansion of communication technology.

Presently the insulator collecting hobby has thousands of people around the world. Many collectors live in the U.S. and Canada. A number of websites exist which hold these items as the primary focus, and eBay even has a separate category for insulators. Quite probably, the largest and most informative private website in the hobby is the Glass Insulators Reference Site.

The Chesapeake Bay Insulator Club's 6th Annual Shenandoah Valley Insulator Show & Sale will be held on Saturday, August 12, 2006 in Martinsburg, West Virginia at the Calvary United Methodist Church, 220 W. Burke Street. The show is from 9am to 2pm; dealer set-up from 7-9am)  For more information about the show, or to join the Chesapeake Bay Insulator Club, contact Jeff Hollis at 304.263.6140, e-mail wvacampfire@cs.com
