The power is served from the front side of the house and there is no
easy way to have the meter in the back. They are not going to run the
service lateral all the way around a row of homes and down through the
back yards just to hide a meter.

Around here most "row housing" has all the meters on one end wall,
where they are relatively unobtrusive.

Not practical when you have a city block of 25 houses in a row.
Philadelphia had thousands of houses like that. most with meters in the
back though.
