Cables and wires

As the house is being rewired, under floorboards and behind wall panels a network of cables and wires, usually hidden from view, is brought to light. Entangled cables from different eras: pre-1970s rubber coated wires, now crumbling and disintegrating, partly replaced later by white PVC around red and black. Now all ripped out and replaced with grey PVC around blue and brown to conform to European regulations introduced in the early 2000s to make the house a safer place.
