Everything on the tree looks OK- metal (look at the screw indents) outside cover, used a junction box, attempt at strain relief. What strikes me is that the connector under the box looks like a plumbing PVC piece, and the conduit appears to be drip irrigation tubing. The curve in the tubing make me doubt that it's buried mor than a few inches deep. Also: If he'd used a plastic outdoor box, he wouldn't need a ground wire.
Boy, you guys have got some sharp eyes!! Yes, it's across from HB pier. The white PVC fitting is an irrigation transition fitting to adapt from PVC to the 1/2" poly irrigation tubing that was used here. Ground wire? What ground wire? Zip Cord runs through the "conduit"!! (BTW, in the early 70's I lived in a house next door to this location. Built in 1908, 2 story, and rent was $125 a month. The City bought the property and razed the house. It's now occupied by condos...about $500K for 800-900 sq ft. There goes the neighborhood )

I know exactly where that is...I used to work for a company that performed all the electrical maintenance on the Edwards Cinema upstairs. If I only had a digital camera back then, I'd be posting here daily...
