Enclosed Service Drop

I'm sorry about any confusion. I am speaking of the service drop, the overhead service from the utility power line to the weatherhead. That's not an optical illusion. The drop is enclosed in a metal encasement of some sort.

I have never seen this and was curious. The house was 1950's Chicago and the next door neighbor had the same deal.

Oh, that. I assumed it was the standard twisted three conductor stuff that the utilities companies around here use for their service drops. You wouldn't have another picture of it, would you? Looking closely, it reminds me of really heavy stranded steel cable, the type they use on suspension bridges. The conductors are inside that?

Never saw anything like it before.
