Early in this century, we too in the USA were with many overhead wires used for communications systems, and electrical circuits.

This was discovered somewhere, I know not where, and it is something common when visiting other countries!

Quite a sight, but then it doesn't look as though the view would be any better without this lot!

My guess would be India or somewhere in that region.

Now if you toss some old tennis shoes and plastic shopping bags from the garbage over those wires it will look like parts of Queens County or Richmond County (Staten Island) here in the "Big Apple".

Definitely looks like India or Pakistan, Paul....the "KAPOOR" banner gives it away sort of.

Neat and workmanlike, huh?

Sure, this type of wiring will always look messy but does it have to look quite this bad?
