Who remembers the days when telephone and electrical lines ruled the sky? [Image]

These photos are of telephone lines over New York in 1887, so I doubt anyone remembers this specific scene. But, still, the question is valid: who remembers those days? In fact, for some people “those days” are today. I’m currently overseas and electrical lines still rule the sky here; not so much anymore in the States.

    A modern day place that is very similar is China. I don’t want to imagine being a line man working on that mess!
