referred to ancient Greece, however the hugepowerful lifts] which we have known were created in the XIX century and used to work under the ground. Lifting equipment started to be very common in the times of industrialisation specially in western Europe and the United States. The hydraulic crane was crated by William Armstrong in 1846 to worked in docks, nevertheless it had increased in very short time, in 1870 in the New York City was constructed the first building with offices and with passenger lifts.
Today just like in in the past lifts are used to transport humans and goods, especially the big ones, the same as with metal works Poland (for example in Gdańsk’s docks) has a large number of cranes and different lifting equipment. Cranes in Gdańsk shipyard not only are the significant form of transport, but they are as well a significant part of polish history, therefore when we write about metal works Poland is connected with business and simultaneously with tragic, nevertheless heroic history. It is a good idea to visit the European Solidarity Centre and learn much more about these events.
An elevator isn’t the finest invention in the human history, but it is very important. It will be great thing to wach what sort of equipment will be constructed in the next few years, specially in the construction area.
