Something New, #88

I learned how to run an elevator. Not the kind that you see in department stores or office buildings, but an old freight elevator, probably 75 years old. It had two wooden slat doors that raised and lowered manually and I had to actually hold the switch down the whole time for the ride, then give it a little bump to get it level with the floor I was stopping on.

I'm not sure that the elevator was entirely safe, or if the city knows of its existence.
