Paternoster lift closes

Post by Tony.Williams » Fri Dec 15, 2017 12:53 pm

I'm rather sad about this one - I used that actual lift a long time ago, and thought it was a great idea: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-le ... e-42339097

I visited the one in Sheffield University Arts Tower in 1968. This from 2011.

I had to use a lift like this once when I lived in Prague. I think it was in or close to Wenceslas square and it was a bit scary...I was going for a job interview but it was a good conversation piece! ( I didn't follow up the job as it was rubbish money)

Tink, I wonder if it was the "Lucerna" building? Article from 2006.
