Description

This electrical worker's hard hat is made of non-conductive fiberglass, an important safety feature for those working on electric poles and lines.

This hat carried the Central Maine Power Company initials and electric bolt logo.

Early industrial hard hats were developed in the 1920s and were made of steel or aluminum.
