Lonnie Enzweiler told me this building won awards
for its design when it was first built.
He had trouble believing it too.
“On the night of October 26th, a safe deposit vault in the Bank of
Alexandria, Ky., a few miles south of Cincinnati, was blown open by
cracksmen, and the bank officials state that $40,000 worth of
Liberty Bonds were stolen. The robbers did not attack that part of
the vault in which the bank’s funds were deposited. They gained
entrance to the building by boring a hole in the lock and inserting
a small charge of nitroglycerin. The post office at Alexandria,
which has a safe deposit box in the bank, lost stamps and money
amounting to $1,000. All the telephone wires leading to nearby towns
were cut by the robbers.” More about the robbery here.
