It’s interesting to see how spaces get repurposed. The first bank vault I ever walked into was one that a bookstore had turned into the perfect space for their science fiction paperbacks. There have been minibars and jewelry displays in others. This one is the used to display tequila, although the manager admitted they didn’t have all that many pricey bottles to enshrine. They did a nice lunch business, though, and for once, I’m posting an image of gears that has NOT been color-shifted. The green-orange glare is from the vibrant paint and faux finishes used in the next room.
Felt like home.
