Your front brakes look normal. I think the cable on the front you see is for the self adjuster. In the rear, I don't see a good photo of it but there is a lever that attaches to both the back side of the shoe and the e brake cable.
Edit: the e brake lever is attached to the shoe with the horseshoe clip in pic 2
