Back around 1983 we did a retro in an old liquor store in Wash DC. The switch bank there set a record that I have never seen broken ... it had 21 (yes, 21) switches in a row ... and it had a 21 gang face plate on it. The owner said it was put in back in the late 1930s so they wouldn't need to unscrew the fuses to turn all the lights off. To this day I could kill my guys for throwing the face plate away.

My first thought - the days before "lighting control" panelboards...

Re: the Water heater photo:
I wouldn't be concerned about the plumbing-clean solder joints w/no flux residue, Smitty pan w/drain (for the future leak in the tank), steel angle strut to spanner on ceiling to support the 50 lbs. or so of water.
My concerns are - disc. for DWH not accessible, and MC cable in contact with the copper water piping where it runs through the wall.
