I found this in a house in Tucson that was over a hundred years old and has undergone countless wiring additions over the years. The home once belonged to a prominent doctor who was part of one of our city's founding families.

Beautiful sunset! Those scorpions and rattlers just becoming active are pretty impressive too.

This was taken in Cape May, NJ....one of the few places on the East Coast where you can see the sun set over the Atlantic.

Pretty nice celtic... anyway what is the receptacle? Is it just an early 120V 20 amp 2 wire? It was wired with BX and still supplying 120V. I was thinking it was for an early window air conditioner. It was located in a room that used to be a porch and was closed in without a cooling duct.

I have seen a receptacle like that before, as a matter of fact, I THINK There is something like that sitting on a shelf at the supplier that I used to work at, new in the box! If i am not mistaken there may even be a matching cap!!
I will have to write myself a note to see if so and I will get a pic of it ( If I remember LOL..
O ya BTW... Very nice Sunsets!1 Picture Postcard PERFECT!

Red sky in the morning,
Shepherd's warning.
Red sky at night,
Shepherd's cottage is on fire.

Any day I watch the sun set is a good day...red, blue, purple...it's still a good day.
I missed the sunset today because I had to change a sill plate on my house - that's a bad day [Linked Image]
