A wonderful piece on a man named Ruben Pardo who runs a manual elevator at 5514 Wilshire Blvd. I've passed this place before but never knew about the rich story of this man and his elevator. I think the next time I go back to LA I'll drop by and say hi. After all, I do love a good 'ol art deco interior.
I've been subscribed to this channel for ages but I guess when you're subscribed to a bunch of channels, only the ones that you've clicked to watch recently ever show up in your feed. Well, I'm glad YouTube randomly switches it up for me. They recently reminded me of Heritage Elevators, an entire YouTube channel devoted to showing off vintage and unique elevators. It's kind of a lot of fun to watch somebody so excited about elevators go about riding in so many different ones.
