Cary Safe, California Car Wash

with 2 comments

I though I would start a new “Safes” category.  I have always been fascinated with safes and what might be inside them.  I came across this safe at a car wash in California.  Needless to say it is quite old and probably doesn’t have any goods in it.  There is the fact that any safe is sure to have an interesting history. This safe was manufactured by the Cary Safe Company of Buffalo, NY.  Holding true to what is on the Wikipedia page, the original owner had their safe customized with their name/business on the upper portion of the safe.  Oh yea, I love the dog sticker, what did I say about good history!
