It can be funny to come across a product or component from "back in the day". Seeing something that was state of the art at the time and now it seems so ridiculous in the modern light. Time marches on, knowledge increases and therefore change is as inevitable as the sunrise.
Here is an old and silly component I find from time to time. It's the copper sheet at the top of the block wall in the photo. This sheet is installed along the entire perimeter of home over the top of the foundation walls.
Can you guess its purpose?
