6:19 am
revolving stairs was awarded to a man named nathan aims. no picture of aims seems to exist. nor was single working model of his impractical triangle design ever built. it was left to others to take the next step. in 1895, an inventor named charles seeburger was the first to use the term escalate for combining latin words "scala" with "elevatus" for rise. in 1896 a different inventor jessie reno installed one of his designs at new york's coney island as a thrill ride. by the early 1900s the otis elevator company had acquired most of the escalator patents and the moving staircase was quickly becoming a familiar sight in department stores and other public places.
6:20 am
familiar enough in fact to win a comic role in charlie chaplain's 1916 film "the floorwalker." not that escalator designs stood still since then, few of the earliest escalators with wooden steps still survive. most escalators long since adopted steps of metal. and early this century mitsubishi lecturned heads by installing a spiral escalator at caesar's palace in las vegas. even made political history this past june, donald trump rode one to enter the presidential race. with the escalator and its cues in the moving sidewalk at airports and much quoted ancient chinese proverb, the journey of a thousand miles can begin with just a single step.
