Broad Street Head Office - Safe Deposit
These bronze grilles (at each end of the short corridor containing the Safe Deposit door) controlled access to the area. Kept locked during business hours, the grilles enabled the flow of customers to be monitored, although no security check was made at the gate. The renter's identity was established at the circular desk visible on the right side, which is opposite the Safe Deposit strongroom door. This view is from the east side of the building; renters would normally enter this area from the opposite side.
