The well of the Roux Combaluzier elevator, Eiffel Tower, Paris, 1889

The well of the Roux Combaluzier elevator, Eiffel Tower, Paris, 1889. When it opened for the Paris Universal Exposition of 1889, the Eiffel Tower had four elevators. The north and south elevators were installed by the American firm Otis, while the east and west ones were supplied by Roux Combaluzier Lepape, a French company. The French elevators were operated by hydraulically powered chains and rollers. Their performance was poor, however and they were replaced by new lifts supplied by the Fives-Lille company in 1897 and 1899.
