What is the dangling cylinder
? It is about a yard long. It had been attached to the telephone pole, but that pole was replaced by the one in the image, leaving the cylinder danging and joined to the new pole by a rope, as shown.

The top seems to go to the telephone line, not the power line, but it is difficult to tell; the power, telephone, and cable connections are very close together.
