Early History of Glass Insulators: The "Pony" insulator developed about 1878, was widely used on telephone, fire-alarm and police telegraph lines. The manufacturer of the "Pony" described it as a Western Union style of insulator "reduced in size but made to fit the same pin or bracket." After 1885 this type of insulator was in general use on most long-distance lines. 1879 cut of CD 102 from Brookfield Design Patent Application
