Department Store Escalators Study
Well, if you like escalators (and who doesn't?), you'll like this. Here's some hot department store escalator action for you, via YouTuber, CoastersNSich, who provided this description for the video (and is way too much into escalators, lol):
"Riding the escalators at Famous-Barr in Downtown St. Louis. You will notice three different types of escalators. First, a modern Schindler escalator (used for floors 1-4) with glass balustrades, no more than 5 years old. Next, an earlier Westinghouse model (floor 4 to 5)with steel art deco-style balustrades and design. Finally, two wooden Otis escalators (Floors 5 to 7), possibly from the 1930s - wooden escalators but with steel steps.Cool video, CoastersNSich! Though personally, I could think of better music to accompany the visuals if I had my druthers. But hey, it's your baby, you rock it. :)
Ever since my childhood, I've loved riding the many escalators in the big old downtown department stores - St. Louis is fortunate to have this one. This store is set to be rebranded as Macy's this fall as a result of the Federated-May merger."
