First Nat'l Bank Vault

Few of the old banks in Shreveport have an intact bank vault door. This one was taken off by force. While the inside of the vault appears to be burned, the rest of the bank did not have any signs of burning. My guess is that the method for removing the door included some sort of fire in the vault. I doubt it was an explosion, as the roof of the vault and the adjoining room show no signs of an explosion.
