Bought an old school locker at a flea market and two of the lockers won't open.

I bought this groovy vintage locker
at a flea market a year ago tomorrow. Today the shame of neglecting it for 364 days got the best of me, so I've started working on painting, priming and trying to get the last two #$^*%&ing lockers open.
This is the type of lock in question:
I've tried bobby pins and paper clips but apparently am not a good lock picker. Then, stupidly, I tried to drill through one, which was really dumb and resulted in just stripping away the key slot.
Am I destined to have to waste valuable storage cubbies, forever wondering what the heck is in them? Can anyone help? I do have a call in to a locksmith but they sounded just as confused as me on the phone.
Thanks for any tips and advice!
