These pictures of vault lights around the Porter Building in Sacramento were taken by Brandon Hartle in June of 2004. He reports about a half-dozen sites in Sacto with remaining vault lights; more pictures are promised! The hollow sidewalks surrounding the building are featured in this extensive gallery, and there's a good article about "the underground", the forgotten city beneath modern Sacramento, in this Sacramento News & Review article.
