Roland S. Rand, a Central Maine Power Co. employee, used these rubber gloves that carry a CMP logo on them.

Rand carried the gloves, along with a pair of leather ones, in a canvas pouch with his name on it. They were part of a lineman's safety equipment.

Rand was CMP's district manager for the Lewiston-Auburn region in the 1950s.
