We have recently become attracted to the allure of vintage bank vaults. The beautiful metalwork, detailed mechanisms, and lustrous patina make for undeniable eye-candy.
This particular vault door is on display at the City Museum in Downtown St Louis. The detailed brass and steel is a sight to behold. Did you know that most vaults are custom designed? The vault is usually the first aspect of a new bank building to be designed and built.
