High above the rest of the animals at the zoo is a team of aerial performers changing the insulators on a high voltage conductor line. The side of the pylon on the left is live at 132,000 volts and the team of 3 linesmen aloft are lowering the old pot insulators balanced by the new glass set going up. the old set is at the bottom of the pic. The conductors on the side the linesmen are working are, of course not energised. Out of shot are a team of sweating muscular tough guys heaving on the rope lifting the new and lowering the old insulators.
