ELEVATOR WORLD Graphic Design Associate Jessica Trippe captured images of these two Schindler escalators with clear side panels while in Baltimore. The one-time power plant in which they are located is a Barnes & Noble store in the city’s Inner Harbor. While EW often reports on clear-paneled elevators, escalators of this sort are rarities.
