A common condition under the streets many major cities, because of the salt and rain passing through the earth!

Most of these problems are left unnoticed by the supplier of the product.

Wow!! I wonder how much longer before that whole mess fails with a bright flash and loud bang? Looks like the conductors' insulation is in bad shape as well.

Nice hack job on the MC in the upper left too.

edit: Whoops, looks like there IS a fitting there! Maybe it broke free or was just passed thru an oversize KO?!?

If it weren't propped up on those poles, it'd fallen on the floor a long time ago.
