Elevators and Laterators

Original Otis Idea

Thinking laterally…

Elisha: Nice elevator, this. Windows, aircon, TV, mirrors, seats. Fancy.
Ernie: Far cry from the original Otis.
Elisha: If elevators were as good as this, it would be nice to take a trip all over the city using only elevators.
Ernie: Something like a public elevator system?
Elisha: Mmm. Elevators that in places went sideways, and in other places went up.
Ernie: A kind of lateral elevator? Maybe you could call it a laterator.
An idea is born. 
First: a city tour of its elevators. 
To map out the laterator linkage lines.
