North or South America?

Part of me thinks South/Central America because of the huge case of napkins labelled "Servilletas", but then again, they could just have been imported -- what with global markets and containers being labelled in languages ranging from Albanian to Romanian.

Then again, the dirt clumps hanging from all visible surfaces reminds me of the NYCTA Subway!!!

That is a weird installation—high-security meter rings, but no receways between sockets.

This makes most American bad wiring look good. The above I would think would be classified as "dangerous, disconnect at once".

Yeah they probably care more about the meter getting stolen rather than power.

Suprisingly, the more I look at it, the more familiar it seems. confused Bird crap and K&T enhances it! grin

The next time I am at a flea market, I will take lots of pics to show you some real code violations! mad
