Description

#2422      734      MC MICKING      VICTORIA B.C. 75         Aqua with carbon.

Well pronounced carbon particles cascade downward from the dome, creating wonderful character, making it quite desirable and worth a premium over plain examples.

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.

Exceptionally nice, very near mint condition.
