Pushmatic queston

I've seen plenty of "standard" Pushmatics, but this bus arrangement is new to me and I want to make sure I understand and report it properly.

Is appears to me that what we have here is two separate 100A 240V buses, with each "section" controlled by the 100A breaker at the top of the buss (a sort of "split buss" equipment, as it were).

However as I can't see the entire mechanical arrangement of the buss bars and their connections to the SEC's I'm not 100% certain.

Is anyone here familiar with this panel?

In my area these were used extensively in electrically heated houses. One side would be for heat the other for lights, outlets and other appliances. In many cases the heat breakers would be double wired to room air conditioning units with the theory that you would not use both at the same time. You did note the rust?
