Mr Monkey at Smith Tower, 4th February

"It's the most ornate elevator I've ever been in"

Mr Monkey in a Smith Tower elevator Mr Monkey arriving at the Chinese Room

Mr Monkey took an elevator up to the Chinese Room and Observation Deck on the 35th floor of the Smith Tower. Smith Tower has the last manually operated elevators on the west coast; there's seven of them, and six still use the original DC motors installed by the Otis Elevator Company in 1914. When the very smooth elevator stopped, he scurried out into the Chinese Room.
