Description

#1635      734      MC MICKING       VICTORIA B.C. 75        Aqua with carbon bubble.

Robert McMicking was one of the "Overlanders" who travelled from eastern Canada to the West in the 1860's.  He was employed on the "Collins" line in British Columbia, and later became involved with other areas of the communication industry. 

Most McMicking insulators now in collections were recovered at two locations along the North Thompson River in British Columbia.  They were part of the materials left behind in the mid 1870's when an attempt to construct a cross-Canada land line was abandoned.

Attractive character is present with a sizable "carbon" bubble directly above the embossing.

Exceptional, very near mint condition!  This type insulator is available, but usually not in this great condition, and seldom with a desirable "character" bubble!
