Entrance to vault

From text: "The portal of this treasure house is guarded by a double set of eight-ton doors similar to those in position in the business vaults of the bank on the floor above. A sentinel stands always at either door, although during business hours the eight-ton door is of course swung open and a heavy bronze and steel-grated door bars the entrance on the inner side of the vestibule. These vaults and doors were designed by E. A. Strauss, engineer for Jenney & Mundie, the architects.
