Given the 1950s origin, you’re almost certain to have something like a 50-60A main coming in through that fire hazard of a main box. You’ll want to replace the main box at the very least. Sometimes they would have fed the main with up-sized wire, so you might be able to get a 100A main installed without pulling new wire from the pole. That is unlikely, however.
