I have found this outlet outside a local bar/theater. The outlet is still live as it was used for a radio. I was able to take 2 pictures. It's acctually a lot closer to the water than the picture shows.

Best regards,
William B.

Wrong sort of box here.

It also looks like the bottom tab on the outlet is NAILED to the building.

With one side missing the box fill calculations get interesting.

Also, with the one side missing, great wasp habitat. What part of the country is this from?
