    While I don't like that, there is no switch or overcurrent device in there, so it's okay.

    Mr Peck,

    If there are fuse's in the disconnect then it would be an over current device.

    You are, of course, correct *IF fused*, however, that photo looked like it was just a non-fused pull out disconnect. Meaning NO overcurrent protection.

    Dan,

    Those whites look like the neutrals of the black & white circuit passing through. At least that's what I took them to be.

    Which is one of the very reasons the whites are required to be "permanently reidentified by painting" or other effective (permanent) means *IF* they are part of a 240 volt circuit and not the neutrals for a 120 volt circuit.

    You'd need to ask Jeff if he checked that as we cannot tell from the photo.

    Mr. Peck,

    Thanks. I can see the panel does not look deep enough.
