    Here is my Wester Electric Switchboard which I believe is a 555. It must have been in some hotel as all the extensions are rooms or other locations in a hotel.

      Msny yrs ago I owned a similarly sized switchboard that looked an awful lot like that (best as I recall anyway) but unfortunately it 'got away' from me ultimately due to my inability (at the time) to either move *or* store it somewhere myself...the d*mned thing (prolly like yours) was built on a 1 or 1-1/4" angle iron inner frame, even before the many more hundred pounds of various steel/copper/etc switchgear contained within...that thing was friggin HEAVY, just like I guess yours is...?!! :-) :-) :-)
