We’re all familiar with elevators in tall buildings. They help us not have to climb all those stairs! However, before the modern elevator with its closing doors and stopping at each floor, the paternoster lift, was considered to be a great way to move people up and down buildings in a very free and easy way. There was only one problem: they weren’t very safe. These lifts killed people and if clothing were caught or someone was too slow, the injuries could be quite severe. They are however making a bit of a comeback. You’ve probably never seen one before but in this video we’re going to learn all about the paternoster lift.

This month, Rouges is proud to be sponsored by The Blinkist. We all need time to read but finding that time is hard. Blinkist makes it far easier by summarizing popular books and thought leaders into small chunks that you can listen to into the gym or in the car.
