My aunt fell on these and lost her index finger back in 1994.

The craftsmanship required to make such a thing work seamlessly is impressive. I am aware that wood is probably not the best material to make something as intricate as this as durable as needed to be walked all over, but I’m still impressed.

I had no idea we had these 100 years ago.

Every year, going up to the Santa village on the, what, 11th floor? The escalators were steel until maybe floor 6 or 7. The wooden ones meant we were close!

Well that’s never good. Still really nice well built old escalators though.

Why dont they paint them a more calming color, this looks far less intimidating than those silver devil machines.
