When you think of a bank vault you probably tend to think about thick steel doors, massive locks, armed guards, deposit boxes and lots of cash, which is why it is so strange to see what they look like when they've been abandoned! These vaults were built to withstand robbery attempts, so they survive even when the building is destroyed around them. Many have found a new life with a different purpose. The vault pictured is in Bodie, California.
