Here are some pics of a power strip and a couple of Hubbell 15 A. to a 20 A. "crowfoot" adapters, plus an illegal "livefront" crowfoot attachment plug.

The "bizzare" things are cool. I have some sockets and pendant switches like that porcelain green one.
I've never seen a tap (northwest of the green pendant switch) yet with 2 edison bases and the plug tap in that configuration.

I think a lot of people reading this will already know, but the round-pin receptacle shown as India/South Africa on that dist. board is the old BS546 15-amp outlet, also once the norm in the U.K. and still widely used here in theatre lighting.
