Everything pictured is still in use. Some of the subpanels in the building have been converted to breakers, these are the ones that haven't yet.

Wow, some of those fuses are probably as old as the panel itself.

Look at the ones with the black fronts and the tiny windows. It's been DECADES since I've seen them like that!!!!

COOL. I hope that when it gets swapped out, someone saves it. I'd love something like that in my house (maybe with a dead-front covering the buss bars though).
