This "Night Depository" drum is attached to one of downtown Olympia's historic buildings, The Security Building. Click here for a brief history. I think you'll find it interesting.

    I hope you had an armed escort when you made your drop here -:)

    Oh, the good old days. The Security Building reminds me a lot of the buildings in Minneapolis during the 1950s... some of which I worked in while in high school.

    I guess we still have "night depositories" now, we just call them ATM's.

    That was an interesting read. It certainly does have a strong foundation!

    This is very informative for me, I wish I can find an old night depository here in Portland (if there is). Thanks for sharing!

  5. There are some stories I can't tell about the things that the local bank where we used to live found at the bottom of these on some mornings.

    I have felt good but am still on medicine and began working on

    The predecessor of the ATM deposits. Cool!

    I love this old depository. I think you should do some more pix of the building. I enjoyed reading the info, but their pictures are not clickable, which I always find irritating on small photos. It seems they need your help!

  8. Great shot of the night drop and interesting info on the building. MB
