That old Wadsworth box is sorry enough, but that SE cable coming to the meter can really looks rotten...in a very short length of time, you might not even have to use a bulldozer to correct this situation. I wonder why the POCO doesn't disconnect this entire "service" (I use that term very loosely)?
Is there any such thing as an electrical "dis-service"?

is this in a bad part of the City? the whole place looks ultra-low-rent, run-down and beat-up, I doubt that whoever's running those apartments would be willing to replace anything they don't absolutely have to, much less hire an even semi-qualified electrician, it's sad -Will
OH MY GOD!!! Someone couldn't find a better place for that fusebox??? I'll second, that "shack" is wayyy past it's expiration date, ready to be put to rest by Caterpillar. I can't imagine looking out the window thinking.. "Gosh, thats a beautiful view of a.... fusebox!"
Where does the old romex out the top of the fusebox end up? Seeing the boarded up door and the 2 different exterior surfaces hints towards some kind of alteration of the building. Looking at the shadows on the building, I'm afraid to say, I think the rotted looking thing is (was) actually SE cable at one time... (Maybe when Herbert Hoover was in office )
My guess is an attempted remodel by the HO and maybe one of his buddies, relatives, etc. about 50 years ago and they simply lost interest.. (or ran out of beer)
