Elisha Otis demonstrates his new safety feature at the Crystal Palace Exhibition, New York 1853. He was hauled above the crowd, the rope cut - but instead of falling to the floor the list stayed in position as a safety bar came into operation.

The use of Otis lifts made the modern age of the sky-scraper buildings feasible. Art includes a portrait of the inventor. From Look and Learn 525, 5 February 1972.
