    In 1995 was it acceptable to place panelboards in closets or bathrooms in Florida?

    Bathrooms, no, yes, maybe. 'Not in bathrooms' came into the NEC in the 1993 Edition. The 'no, yes, maybe' is regarding your "in Florida" part - Broward County adopted the lasted edition effective the date the code became effective. Miami-Dade County was usually 1 or 2 code editions back. Palm Beach County was usually a code cycle back. Other parts of varied from current to being 1 or more code cycles back - so ... in 1995, in your area, yes, no, or maybe.

    Closets - depends on the closet: No to "clothes closets". No to "storage closets with provisions for "clothes". No to "storage closets" which do not have space for the required 30" x 36" working space and access to it and still allow room for 'storage'. No to "storage closets" which contain other easily ignitable material (other than "clothes"). Yes, maybe, to "storage closets" which are large enough for the working space plus storage plus do not have any easily ignitable material stored in them (yeah, right, how do you know that?).

    Closets - short answer: Not a real good idea ... but could be possible.
