Thanks Betty...for everything! .... wow, looks like at least the money in that vault was probably saved.

An interesting artifact. Thanks, Betty, for hosting and sharing your photo. Have a nice day!

Sharon Wagner said...

It looks like an outhouse. But the contents were much more valuable!

Gold rush...

Its necessary and good to remembering. Thank you for sharing.

Oh... I've never seen anything like it! I hope nothing more happened! - The photo is great though, you don't see that often...
Greetings, Julie

How interesting that these were saved as sculptures

Jim said...

Very interesting post.

Veronica Lee said...

Interesting but such a sad reminder. I hope no one perished in the fire.

Happy Wednesday, Betty!

That's a powerful part and this wooden bench can take it. Excellent!

Hi Betty, so glad you invited me to your blog. I don't normally visit blogs that have external links. I normally consider them spam. However, something (and I have no idea what) had me linking to your site. I read your story of how you met your husband and learned you were originally from KS, too (I live in Wichita). I appreciate you inviting me to join in your family friendly weekly photos. However, I prefer not to do so this week, because I want to properly link you when I do. I'll join next week, and if you don't mind, I'll add your badge to my right sidebar. Most Sundays I will post a mural I have found in Wichita. I say "most," because every year from April 1 through April 22, I share a recycled or repurposed project. It leads up to what most people call Earth Day, but I call bEARTHday.

BTW, I also have a Cool Pix, but I doubt mine is as nice as yours. I bought it because it uses 4 AA batteries and not a flat battery like my first Cool Pix. I got tired of waiting for the flat battery to recharge, and I always have charged (rechargeable) AA batteries on hand. I'll see you next Sunday.

It's amazing what heat a bank vault can withstand. That is one incredible photo.

Well...Sic transit gloria mundi.

Happy WW, Betty!

Almost a metaphysical painting...

Jill Harrison said...

well the bank vault was certainly secure! Thanks again for the link up and have a great week!

This part of the building that refused to be destroyed by the fire. Great find. Happy Wednesday!

The vault withstood the fire and that might be reassuring in a perverse sort of way.

Hi Betty, thanks for your comments on my blogs and for hosting My Corner of the World. I do not normally add links to my printed comments so next time I will not add if there is a link on your comment. If I do it for one I have to do it for others! Sorry. Cheers Diane

Ah, the safe was ...well, SAFE! :-)
Thanks for hosting, Betty!

My Desktop Daily said...

Looks like it's sitting on the bench! ;-)

PerthDailyPhoto said...

The fact that the vault still has a lock on it made me smile Betty :)

Rohrerbot said...

The money is all gone I bet:)

eileeninmd said...

Hello,

Seems like an interesting place for a bank vault. Wishing you a great day!

Birgitta said...

Like this! Interesting post!

Debbie D. said...

That must have been a raging fire! Makes for a fascinating photo. The vault is locked, but surely, the money has been removed? ☺ Thanks for hosting this link party. Cheers

Angie said...

Betty - we are all reassured that our worldly goods will be preserved if our bank burns down. Too bad we probably cannot say the same about bank vaults in the "cloud"!

Suzy said...

What an interesting find and thanks for hosting!

Lydia C. Lee said...

That's very cool!!! Hope they had a better door at the time it was a bank!

bill burke said...

Interesting find, at least the vault did the job it was supposed to. :)

Tanya Breese said...

The money was safe there!

isabella kramer - veredit said...

That's a pretty cool story! Warmest thanks, Betty for hosting and creating this lovely linky party.

I wish you a wonderful weekend on the other side of our planet.

xxx, isabella
