The Good Ole Days

The following is an excerpt from the 1914 book “The Building Law of the City of Boston”:

“All elevators running at a speed of more than one hundred feet a minute, shall be operated by competent persons not less than eighteen years of age, and no other person shall operate or have the care or charge of such an elevator.”

So every time you push an elevator button, think of how far we have come in the last 100 years.
