Old Elevator Button or Something Else???

Old Elevator Button or Something Else???

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

Need help with this one. Looks like it might have been some type of button but was it used on an elevator and if so what was the K marking on it for? Also after a search on this building which was built in 1915 this type of button most likely wouldn’t have been used for a push button. There would have been a car switch operation or attendant around this time.

From Cindy:

We were told this was an elevator control switch. Grandfather worked at the Hamms Building in St. Paul Mn, so we were thinking it might have come from there.  Odd looking thing and great conversation piece!  Any info would be appreciated.  Thank You.

Okay elevator historians, share your ideas in the comments section below.  Thanks!
