Absence of Utility Lines: Image courtesy of the University of Vermont Landscape Change Program.Sh'reen Morrison had been on an online dating site for only a few weeks before she realized that something was seriously wrong with the man who had been actively pursuing her by text message and email.
"I probably hear from five scammers a night," says Marko Budgyk, a Los Angeles financier who has frequented several online dating sites over the past 10 years.
These new poles were more uniformly constructed, as seen in the images below.

There were fewer poles needed and fewer wires connecting them. Usually only one horizontal member, to which the wires were attached, was attached at the top.
The late 1870s and early 1880s images below illustrate these early telephone lines.
Beginning in the 1930s, many of the poles and wires in cities and villages were improved and consolidated or placed underground.
Notice in the image below how the utility lines have been uniformly constructed and consolidated to one side of the road.
When Morrison suggested that her suitor put his daughter on a plane to get better medical attention at home -- and even offered to pick the girl up at the airport -- a new crisis struck.
By then, Morrison knew she was dealing with a scammer.

Utility lines have changed very little in appearance over the past century, but there are some clues in their construction that one can use to determine a relative time period.
