Thanks for the insight.
The image showing anode rod with resistor does not show the hex head … is the resistor buried under the head?

Surprising that more water heaters didn’t explode back then.
My grandfather repaired steam locomotives, which I assume work same as run-away water heating. Folks back then probably knew about expansion of heated water, but felt hot water was worth the occasional risk.
