North or South America?

Part of me thinks South/Central America because of the huge case of napkins labelled "Servilletas", but then again, they could just have been imported -- what with global markets and containers being labelled in languages ranging from Albanian to Romanian. [Linked Image]

Then again, the dirt clumps hanging from all visible surfaces reminds me of the NYCTA Subway!!! [Linked Image]

That is a weird installation—high-security meter rings, but no receways between sockets.

This makes most American bad wiring look good. The above I would think would be classified as "dangerous, disconnect at once".

Yeah they probably care more about the meter getting stolen rather than power.

Suprisingly, the more I look at it, the more familiar it seems. confused Bird crap and K&T enhances it! grin

The next time I am at a flea market, I will take lots of pics to show you some real code violations! mad
