A rare future building from 1975, one of a series by John Berkey as adverts for the Otis Elevator Company.


Vertical cylinder, rope-geared hydraulic elevator with 2:1 gear ratio and rope control (about 1880). For higher rises and speeds, ratios of up to 10:1 were used, and the endless rope was replaced by a lever. (Courtesy of Otis Elevator Company.)
