Circuit Breaker Panels

Who painted the breaker panel and why?  Very hard to identify wires: black for hot, white for neutral, green or bare for ground.  If they could mask off the breakers, why not mask off the whole panel?

 

Lots of fabric coated romex, including the main feed.  Older fabric coated romex had a plastic insulator that becomes brittle after it ages.  Bend the wire to make a connection and suddenly you have a large bare wire to work with (note the electrical tape on the left side).  Not safe.
