Is it a 3-phase supply?

If the incoming electrics has two 100amp fuses (presumably one is missing?), is it a 3-phase supply, there does seem to be a single-phase meter on one of the cables but I am unsure as to whether it is a 3-phase?

Are there any obvious signals to tell me if it is? I guess the two 100A fuses maybe confirms the 3-phase?

It could also be a split phase supply (ie. 240 - 0 - 240) ....especially if he is out in the sticks)

but much more likely single phase, especially if an ordinary domestic house.

I wonder how those photos are coming on?
Just trying to work out how to upload a photo... it can't be that difficult surely!
Or use an external image hosting site - they are much better than the one this site provides, which is, not to put too fine a point on it, pants.
The fuse isn't even connected! It's a 1ph supply.
Bit strange - I wonder why that was added. Doesn't look to old either - that model is still current.
