The motto PRUDENT PEOPLE SEEK A SAFE PLACE IN WHICH TO LODGE THEIR SECURITIES is still in a good condition, but some sections of the glass frieze above it were broken
Individual 'Class A' safes near the entrance door
The section of the Safe Deposit that includes the highest numbered of the 10,528 safes - although the tag for that safe is missing
The secure room behind the southeast corner of Safe Deposit was not accessible in January 2009. This view is through the locked grille gate that controls access.
The small door on the far wall links the room to the corridor surrounding the Safe Deposit 'island', and was opened during business hours to provide ventilation.
