    From the 'original' cleanout house, see also:

    Two weatherheads and two insulator racks in pic 1, "CUTLER-HAMMER Type D Safety Switch" in the rest of the pics. All unceremoniously sawzalled/chopped apart for quick removal, once they actually got cut loose from any actual electric power. One more of the larger insulator racks still remains there (I didn't have means to get up high enough to pry it offa the house at the moment) but I also haven't been by there for a week or so time I do so, ifn's it remains, I'll still prolly get it too... ;-) ;-) :-) :-)

    The sorta scariest part (pic 4) is that all this stuff (including my original post above) was actually LIVE and supplying the electricity to that (all electric!) house, until very recently. Can anybody say "CODE VIOLATIONS", on SO many levels...???? <eeek!!!>

    I'm not a licensed electrician though I play one on TV (to coin a phrase, at least in my own house?) but I know WRONG when I see it anyways...and I'm also pleased to have been able to donate a new (modern, safe, depending on how somebody else eventually hooks/ed it all up) circuit breaker panelbox to replace all this old mess. The least I could do IMHO (the new box was just one more 'surplus' thing hanging around here anyway) in return for all the other stuff I've dragged away from there...?? ;-) :-) :-) :-)

    It's also kinda fun to have been able to manage to reclaim all the old stuff too... <LOLOL>

      WOW! I love picture 4! I could use that in my “rust garden” although it wouldn’t really meet the criteria for inclusion there. ;^)
