Installation of elevators in Europe and beyond ...

First prototypes of modern elevators were created before our era. It is known that freight platform lifts, as well as passenger elevators used in Europe - in ancient Greece and Rome - even in the years 200-300 BC. But now, with the advent of massive skyscrapers, the elevator industry has grown to unimaginable proportions, and the installation of elevators has become perhaps one of the most sought after services of modern times.

Gobs of tourists, land scarcity and extreme reluctance to spoil the landscape of cities traditional "privacy booths," was the reason that the owners of restaurants in the center of Copenhagen in the morning had to wash off, so to say, the waste products of tourists from walls and steps institutions. Over time, the mayor's office rather tired constant complaints of businessmen, and its order in the city center was installed elevators that doubles as a urinal.

The idea is simple, like an orange: nightfall comes out of the ground two meters round the elevator car in which three sides there are niches with urinals. With the dawn of a new elevator is hidden underground, "disguised" as an ordinary round hatch. Lift maintenance takes place in auto mode: cab, supplied to the sewage system, automatically flushes waste. I wonder whether employees are required to lift the emergency services to meet maintenance of elevators, plumbers have the skills?

Recently, by the authorities of Paris, Brussels and London, these European cities have also been installed elevators-urinals. Currently under development the same lift-toilets for ladies.
