This looks like an old recycled FPE panel. Notice all the extra missing KO's, the "Stab-Lok" buss and the plaster ring. I'd be willing to bet that the panel cover is long gone, though that's certainly among the least of the problems here. I'm trying to figure out what's going on with that cartridge fuse cutout at the top. It looks like some kind of afterthought that someone tried to cobble in there.
"Horrible" doesn't begin to describe this garbage .
I can't even imagine walking away from a job like this and thinking that it was finished / done well. There are so many problems here you might as well just start over. on a side note, that looks like PVC going in and out of the water heater.
Well, this appears to be a general Code-Enforcement nightmare. Asside from the plethora of electrical hazards (not just violations; hazards!): The ceiling looks like the one with the bootleg incand. luminous ceiling lighting in another post. The paneling directly over painted studs is another sign of a bootleg room addition in probably a garage or basement. THe water heater does not appear to have a press. & temp. relief valve or drain --that's a nice bomb!!! The unsupported and exposed PVC water lines, the layered floor covering. Makes me wonder where the waste goes when you flush the WC; couldn't have been part of a permitted plumbing job, when everything else points to bootleg. My call: red tag the room as unsafe to occupy, and look closely at whatever the rest of the structure is, with an eye to protecting the property owner from himself.
