Moneybags


The current building was first a custom house, then part of the U.S Treasury. This exhibit made me smile; it's a little corny and reminds me of the cartoons where large sums of money were always indicated by piles of bags with large $$$ on the outside.

There were hundreds of millions of dollars kept in vaults here. I love the locking mechanism on the back of the treasury doors.
