The 17th national insulator show was held in Saratoga Springs, New York from July 11-13.   Show hosts John DeSousa, Kevin Lawless and Doug MacGillvary put together an  excellent show!  The show was held at the Saratoga Springs City Center.  One of the highlights of the show was one of the most ambitious group displays organized for a show.  It was a "seldom seen" display of rare and colorful glass and porcelain insulators.  Kevin asked Jeff McCurty and Marilyn Albers to pull the ambitious display together, and they did a fantastic job.  Ray Klingensmith built the cases used to display most of the insulators.

Note that we have limited photographs from this show and will expand as more become available.  Please contact me if you have pictures we can add.
