Welcome Antique Elevator Aficionado!

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

This blog is dedicated to those of us who have a real appreciation for elevators. Not just any elevator but ones that bring a bit of yesterday with each vertical trip.  You might call them antique, classic or turn of the century designed, we just call them cool!

Elevator and their operators where the life blood when buildings started to be built upward.  They gave buildings character and warmth with a friendly, “What Floor Please” when you entered.  They also usually acted as a security guard, knowing when offices were closed, tenants were on vacation and when visitors shouldn’t be on a certain floor.

This blog is made up of contributors who truly appreciate older elevators. If you are interested in becoming a contributor to this site please drop us a line at elevatorpreservation@gmail.com , we’d love to have you.
