The New Money Killers

I saw this picture on one of my favorite websites, The Automatic Earth.  I wanted to share it because I have a fondness for old photos like this, and because I thought we would all benefit by updating the photo a little. 

Harris & Ewing The Money Killers 1917
"Treasury Department, Bureau of Printing and Engraving. Destruction Committee. Maceration of old currency." The lady is Mrs. Louise Lester, "in charge of mutilation."

That is how they used to destroy the currency.  Now we have the Federal Reserve to do it!

Move over Louise.  Were in charge of macerating the currency now!
