Recently, our firm was
hired by a property management firm to replace a 120 volt single
phase 400 amp distribution panel at a high rise condominium complex.
While tracing out all of the loads on this distribution panel, we
found a plug fuse panel that serviced the common areas in the high
rise. We noticed that the old fuse panel was modified with
switches and even a dimmer switch for the common area lighting.
This is one of the most interesting modifications I ever saw.

Best Regards, Jim

Now that's worth a pix! What's more is that somewhere there's probably a maintenance man, time-life book in hand, who's proud of it!!!!
