    Another example of emergency doors yielding to ventilation fans, in this postcard sent in 1921. The bank is in Minneapolis at 730 Hennepin Avenue and is now City Place Lofts.

    The doors are by Mosler.

    I've identified the location as CFS Carp in Ontario, Canada, a cold-war bunker. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CFS_Carp as well as http://www.diefenbunker.ca and http://jenandwillsnorthamericanadven...fenbunker.html. In particular, the following image which also shows the vault has a passageway around it complete with mirrors, intended to foil burglars trying to break in through a wall. Why this is an issue at a cold-war bunker is not clear.

    And while we're at it, the main door (Mosler? Diebold? Taylor?):

    Why does the door in the botom left picture have a sign saying "do not touch without gloves" ?
