Smithsonian Warsaw Hand Operated Lift Needs a Home!

Smithsonian Warsaw Hand Operated Lift Needs a Home!

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

Yes you heard it correctly, a fully functional old Warsaw Hand Operated (manual) Dumbwaiter/Material Lift needs a new home. This unit is currently installed in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC and needs to be taken apart and removed from the building. It is in excellent condition and SI is actively trying to find a non-profit museum or like entity that would be interested in acquiring at no charge (except removal/delivery) this fully operational piece of elevator equipment.  It’s been kept in great condition and was used just two months ago. If this elevator could talk, boy the stories it might tell.

Final approval and terms will be set by SI. If you are interested in this hand operated elevator please contact Jerry at the Smithsonian. Let’s find a home for this vertical transportation treasure!
