    Thanks John....I try hard to find old lineman photos .....it just interest me....I would even like to see what their lunches looked like.....possibly a bag with sandwiches,a batman lunch kit.I know they didnt have a McDonalds around the corner. From what Ive seen....Almost ,only America has vintage lineman photos,there has to be more...lots more.Finding them is tough.And sometimes you need to use different search words.....for an example instead of using vintage or old time ....one might try early ....that helps.Or find an old electric company and go from there.I do know a guy with an impressive collection of tools and material.But he wouldnt be interested in showing them.....only in person.ANYWAY............heres one for you......this could be Poot and T-man in the front.....with Bren in the rear......I call it( Brens first day)at another job..............https://images.search.yahoo.com/imag...arch.yahoo.com
