The Elevator

An image of an elevator? Well, yes. This is a historic elevator system, that used man power to draw the sled up. The sled is that thing hanging on the wall there. It was riding up rails that were steeply built into the wall of the castle, up the mountain.

To operate the elevator, a monk was running or walking in that gigantic hamster wheel and spooled up the rope.
