12 gage wire can be fused for up to 20 amps. I would eliminate the fuses if it is fed from a breaker. Redundant protection isn't necessary.

My first answer would be test to make sure they are still hot, they may have been updated and never removed.

They were taken with a $30 camera from Ocean State Job Lot. Couldn't find my Nikon.
You can't find your valuable Nikon but you can find your $30 job-lot camera???

What's wrong with that picture?

Actually, the redundant protection is necessary because Eaton does not manufacture breakers lower than 10 amps,and the necessary protection for the relays on that circuit is 8 amps. There is also a 6 1/4 amp circuit.

The ones I can make out kinda reminds me of my house. I had some funky wiring in my house when I first started tearing into it. I decided to eliminate variables and start with a new panel. From there I just completely rewired all the heavy stuff. Kitchen, air conditioner outlets, bathroom etc. The only stuff that runs on the old wiring now are plugs with lamps plugged into them. I'm not in a rush to change that.
