Wright's Aerials

I think this aerial was originally fixed to the chimney. When it fell it snapped one element and bent another. This was in a very isolated rural place, and the cost of getting an aerial installer out was probably prohibitive, so the householder hit upon a cunning plan. He mounted the two original chimney brackets on a block of wood, which he fixed to the wall. He then obtained a 12ft length of one and half inch tube of some sort (aerial masting of that diameter isn’t sold in 12ft lengths for a good reason). Finding that the completed job bashed on the gutter in windy weather he went on to modify an old swivel bracket to provide an extra fixing.

Incidentally, he aligned the aerial accurately, unlike his neighbour.
