We still have Westinghouse meters around here being installed. I think that they are probably refurbished though. I think that service looks brand-new myself. My guess would be that the house was a dump and needed a full gutting.
Maybe they hired an EC to install a new service and probably had one circuit (properly) installed to a GFI receptacle. Note the new-looking MC cable leaving the upper left corner of the panel.
It's still a pretty sloppy looking service with the SEU cable being done like that.
I agree that it doesn't appear that there's anything larger than #8 in the panel, but my eyesight and monitor are so bad that I can't say for sure what the breaker ratings are. I did ask myself the same question though.
Since when are devices installed during rough wiring? What about two-gang boxes for single devices? Oh, I get it.........One gang required per cable!
How about a home run of 12/2 marked for "hallway light"? A single 20 amp circuit for a hallway light? No wonder they have such a big panel already being loaded up with skinnies!
Sad, sad, sad. No doubt that it's really a total gut job for sure now.
