Maybe it’s just because I worked at a bank, but I was always fascinated by safe deposit boxes.  The idea that people would value something enough to pay to have it stored in a bank vault…and then what happens to those items when a person dies.  Our bank ended up keeping a box for a period of 10 years before having them removed if no-one came forward to claim them.

I would day dream every time someone came in for a safe deposit box…coming up with a story for each one.
