Posted for Remarked:
One of the newer outlets. Has open ground. Upper rats nest of wiring apparently added later, leads to an outside light.
Close up of improvised wiring. Other wiring in the house looks older but more professional
Most plugs in the house look like this. Metal housing, two holes. We think this is an example of the oldest wiring.
More recent but still old? Metal housing, three-hole outlet but has open ground.
Close up of wire at "open-ground.jpg" Most of the visible house wiring is of this type.
Typical of the light switches in the house.
Pictures are are from the 1920's house BEFORE any electrical work has been done. AFTER hasn't happened yet. I am looking forward to the critique.
