La Guillotine électriques...?
This pylon does look a little like the (in)famous La Guillotine of the French Revolution only with a modern twist - powered by electricity!
Did you know
The guillotine was still in use in the 1930's! The last public guillotining was of Eugen Weidmann, who was convicted of six murders. He was beheaded on 17 June 1939, outside the prison Saint-Pierre rue Georges Clemenceau 5 at Versailles.
