I'll second that. The pictures are great. I'm particularly drawn to the second one. We have all seen the porcelain tubes used where a wire passes through a stud/joist or passes over another nearby wire, but it's interesting to see how the electrician used several tubes together in several places here.

You're welcome.

They sure had some interesting ways of protecting the conductors and for keeping them away from one another.

I was told that the new 200A service is going to be wired tomorrow!
