Capitol Vault
Penney Ryan, director of Executive Services, walks out of the Oregon State Treasury vault in the Oregon State Capitol building in Salem, Ore., on Friday, July 27, 2012. Gleaming plate steel parts give the vault a steampunk look. Moving the two-foot-thick door is like nudging an elephant: after it starts to move, it's hard to stop.
