Interesting how they were so proud of the way in which the splices were made.

No insulated bushings, what's wire bending space, and the size of the box!

I like the total weight for the scrap for the 10 stories (I was told) and what it brought to the till for the people who pulled this stuff out.

PS:MCM is now Kcmil

That's certainly tight in there.

When was the term MCM phased out in favor of Kcmil?

The use of the term MCM was changed to kcmil in the 1999 NEC.

Bailing wire and solder?!
When was that legal?
I've seen a few. And usually date them for the '20's, early 30's.
Any idea how old it is?

Dang that must've been a pain in the rear to get in there!!! Not to mention with all the soldering & wrapping strands in there, this looks like it would've taken about a day a conductor! How would a splice like this be made nowadays??? (Besides with a much larger can!)
