Need Information On Federal Elevator

Need Information On Federal Elevator

November 9th, 2011

Thanks Matt, for sending these cool photographs in. If anyone has information regarding Federal Elevator they would like to share with Matt, please share it in the comments section. I did some digging in my old archives dating back to 1906 and can’t seem to find any reference to a company that manufactured this type of lift by the name of Federal Elevator.
My names Matt and I have a couple questions you may be able to help me with. My Great Grandfather built a two story brick building for a early Ford dealership in 1917 and had a First floor to Second floor Federal Elevator Co. elevator for $440.00 originally installed in Collinsville, IL near Saint Louis. It hasn’t ran in many years and does not have the current motor/electric to do so. I was wondering what you could tell me about the company itself and any company’s that do restoration and repair/maintenance on them to possibly getting it functional again.
Sincerely,
Matt
