I have been in a number of old (1930s) apartment complexes, housing developments (1940s), and many beach cottages that were electrified long after the fact that have this situation.

The answer to your question: morons!

In NJ along the oceanfront in the small town housing areas it's not all that odd to see a wooden exterior shower enclosure that has the meter pan and or meter main inside it.

They might have just got a zero turn mower and didn't get the hang of it quick enough.
