Wheels and Cogs and Stunning Pieces of Steel, Oh My!

We’d like to thank the onsite crew who invested their time, expertise and a whole bunch of courage on the day we dismantled and dropped the 1888 elevator. It was a messy, grotty task conducted in a small, dusty, grimy shaft.

Being an artist I asked that the equipment be treated as gently as possible because the word “sculpture” kept popping into my head. So many beautiful wheels and cogs and stunning pieces of steel! At the end of the day, the guys emerged safely from the wheel house on the roof and the beautiful old bits and pieces of the machinery were removed intact from the base of the shaft.

Thank you Justin, David, John and John!
