Loving the Line Life: Honoring the Trade in Pictures

April 18, 2022
On the 2022 National Lineman Appreciation Day, T&D World looks back at the photos showcased in the Parting Shot department.

Fifteen years ago, the field-focused Electric Utility Operations section of T&D World magazine began showcasing full-page photos of linemen at work in the Parting Shot department. 

To honor the line trade on their special day--the 2022 National Lineman Appreciation Day--we look back at a few of the photos showcased in this department.

If you have a high-resolution, color photo of your linemen on the job, put your crew in the spotlight. Simply email the image to Field Editor Amy Fischbach along with the name of the photographer and a one-paragraph caption. We look forward to hearing from you. 

Field readers, enjoy your special day. Thanks for all you do to power your communities.
