Hemingray Insulator Profile: CD 106  
The Hemingray No.9 was a very popular pony style insulator, designed for rural telephone lines. These were produced in mass quantities, and can commonly be found in aqua, clear and ice blue. Other colors are generally less common and more desirable. This style was later replaced by the smaller CD 107 because it used less glass and was generally more robust.
