Hey, been working on the power line system in Marshall, Minnesota, and was unsure about whether or not these structures would be towers or poles. Attaching URLs of the street view images of each of them.

  1. https://www.google.com/maps/@44.4546766,-95.7966472,3a,75y,28.05h,98.62t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sNa68Z_z2RPkwyomFNcHLAg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 The transmission line the first one is on also features flag style, with same material composition.

  2. https://www.google.com/maps/@44.4344842,-95.7771178,3a,37.5y,180.8h,99.65t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s6mCmg-t7H0QXcsdwL9PXxw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

  3. https://www.google.com/maps/@44.4577313,-95.7562621,3a,27.7y,93.47h,91.81t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sC45r1YabnpJXJukaULCsDA!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo1.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DC45r1YabnpJXJukaULCsDA%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D165.09802%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656

Kind of thinking three is tower because it's an H-frame, but not sure. I'll have more of these to address soon. Thanks for the help!

Hi I'd say poles for all three from looking here :-https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:power%3Dpole

This page describes towers :-https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:power%3Dtower

This should be a comment on BCNorwich reply, but "add new comment'' does not work for me at this moment.

The last photo is not a pole (from the wiki: "A single (often wooden or concrete) pole"), it looks more like the h-frame examples from the power=tower wiki page.

The two others are poles for me a well.
