I am asking this as I like watching the 9Life channels. Never touched the wiring in my house. After spending my lifetime in my house I know the bones of it as any owner would after a lifetime. I am seeing in the USA that everything (light fixtures, switches and power points) are screwed in to a junction box. Is it just me? I have a house built in the 1950s in Sydney, Australia and the lights are just screwed onto the ceiling with no junction box behind it, the power points are screwed onto a bracket on the drywall and same for the power points. There are some insulated screw connectors behind some lights. Was this common in the 1950s? Is it common now? Is it safe? It's been like that for 68 years now. Thanks in advance.
