The slideshow interprets the story of the October 1914 robbery of the First National Bank of Sedro-Woolley, Washington. The presentation was first intended to be projected from glass lantern slides with the narration read live from a type-written script. The presentation toured small theaters across western Washington during the late 1910s. The original creator of the presentation remains unknown.
In 2010, staff at the Washington State Library helped the Sedro-Woolley Museum digitize the glass slides and script through a Washington Rural Heritage sub-grant, funded by the federal Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA), administered by the Institute for Museum & Library Services (IMLS).
