Shilling to Earn All World’s Gold
WHEN Dr. Leopold Bauer, noted Vienna architect, recently deposited a shilling in the Bank of England, to be compounded quarterly and paid to his descendants in 1500 years, we wonder if he realized that he was attempting to corner the world’s wealth.
MONEY VAULT LIKE FORTRESS IS SURROUNDED BY MOAT
Surrounded by a deep moat and covered with a bomb-proof roof, a safety deposit vault, constructed on the lines of a medieval fortress and considered impregnable to raids from land or air, has been built for tlie Bank of France. Heavy steel girders, and concrete several feet in thickness, form the top, which is impervious to explosives that might be dropped from aircraft.
Day or Night Deposit by Chute
RECEIVING bank deposits and carrying them through a steel chute to the vaults, a day and night depository service has been inaugurated by a bank in Oakland, California. Built into the masonry, the chute is wired with burglar alarms and is safe from possible theft. Women may safely deposit jewelry in the evening.
