Detroit Edison Workers Putting up Electric Pole
Caption: Pole Goes Up: A Detroit Edison utility pole digger is in position (left) to gouge a hole for a 70-foot pole that gets "planted" (center) [this photo] and finally straightened (right). The utility spends about $600,000 a year for poles, transmission lines and other equipment to extend service in the 1,200-square-mile district.
