Telephone lines are constructed between fire lookout stations in the national forests of the United States. Poles are creosoted, placed in position, and bolstered with guide wires. Wire is reeled out on the ground along the right-of-way and then raised on the poles by linemen. Includes shots of various methods of attaching the line to poles and to trees, of installing insulators, and of splicing wire.
