New elevator


This is the second generation of lifts in the mine. This one at least start to look like what we think of as an elevator today. They stuffed four to five people inside this elevator, and on the way down one or two people were riding along on top of it as well. At least they could relax a bit more in this elevator compared to the one in the previous post.
