the meter as found. the supply configuration of multiple smaller pipes connecting to a larger pipe is referred to as a manifold. back in the day i suppose they had limited equipment so maybe they didn't have an 1.5 or 2 inch pipe tap, but hey had a 1 inch so they made multiple taps to get the flow. there may have been more scientific reasons for doing it that way, but im not aware of any.
