Found in a bathroom of a 1920’s house in East Los Angeles… Installed by the homeowners “friend”… Fed from a 35A “multibreaker” The cloth wire attached to the ground bus & exiting the screw hole in the back of the can goes under the house & “wraps” around a steel water line
The burn marks were caused by a torch when the wires were soldered. This equipment was found in Nebraska in a refrigerator that served as the cabinet for this “Home Made” Panelboard!
And, as if this wasn’t bad 'nuff, the seller is a Journeyman Electrician!
This great little loadcenter was the supply for an above ground spa.
It was mounted about 18" above the ground in a flowerbed, where it was watered regularly.
The cover was nowhere to be found.
This was what was running the sprinkler system until about a week before they put the house on the market.
