There are tons more photos on the website. Have you ever thought about collecting old safes? It’s such a cool and historical thing to collect though I imagine that getting them and hauling them around right be a bit difficult—they are NOT meant to be easily moved!This really gets me thinking about the kinds of people these banks and safe owners were trying to protect their belongings from. I keep thinking about Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in the opening of the film when the gang robs the train. Amazing!
