#Onthisday in 1859, Nathan Ames from Michigan patented an invention he called “Revolving Stairs,” generally acknowledged as the world’s first escalator. However, Ames was unable to put his invention into practical use; and when he died in 1860 his revolving stairs had never been built. The earliest working escalator was patented in 1892 by Jesse W. Reno, and was actually introduced in 1896 as a novelty ride at Coney Island. #OnlyinNY . .
