From the author:

“I hope you enjoy this rare look at an antique elevator from 1954. DISCLAIMER! DO NOT ATTEMPT what you see in this video. THE PURPOSE of this video is for you to get a behind the scenes look at a piece of history that is in danger of being replaced. It was conducted under proper clearances. If you do attempt what you see you can be injured, killed, cause property damage or face legal consequences. Also this elevator had no cartop controls so that alone makes it more dangerous. DO NOT ATTEMPT. I do this because I had proper clearances and so you don’t have to.”
