:any more information on the socket on the right? it sort of looks like it was designed to take both europlugs and unearthed american plugs but it also looks like it might fit an earthed american plug (which woulld be very dangerous if that was a live contact. Plugwash 13:29, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Indeed those sockets will take both schucko plugs and USA ones. No earth of course, but then the supply probably has not got one either. Appliances with metal cases, like cookers, washing machines etc of that era were supplied as class 0A, so 2 core lead and a lug for a separate earth wire. The newer sockets are 3 pin, but 220V and 110V are still intermixable.
