A relic from another time

I was at the Mining Exchange on Friday, the first day of 2016, to shoot a wedding. Before I reported for duty I took this picture of the enormous, ornate, walk-in safe in the lobby. The Mining Exchange is a historic building and an integral part of the region's history. It was as important to the economy of the American west in its day as the New York Stock Exchange is to our country's economy now. It's only natural that a there would be a giant safe in the lobby! The building was completely remodeled and fashioned into a chic hotel in recent years. I always enjoy working there.

Beautiful detail on this safe! They don't build them like this anymore.

I agree, William. It really is a beautiful old safe.
