The Means of Communication (Pt 2)

Telephone/Telegraph poles...they exert a fascination for me. For some reason I've never quite understood, I see them as a symbol of America, of it's great wide open spaces. Not that we don't have such wires in England...but they're not spread over anything like the same distance. Somehow, I have them tied-up with the idea of exploring new frontiers, the migration west. I suspect it may have something to do with old western movies, in which word invariably arrived to isolated outposts via telegram.
