    That is a "P" clamp used to support aerial telephone wires from the pole to the house.

    Here is the one on my house. You place the wire in the tray then lay the top over it and pull the loop tight.

    his house is 1952.
    painted in 1969.
    whats yours?

    dad got tired of painting his house so he added the soffit. it gave the clapboards about about another 30 years of life.
