Its elevators require no attendants, being moving platforms that ascend and descend on a belt, like buckets of anold-time well. One must watch hisstep to enter or leave as the platform passes his floor. To the left is the ultra-modern Palace Hotel, where it seems as ifinfinite pains had been taken tobedifferent in every detail-in lighting effects, in furnishings, in decorations, even in the designs of knives, forks, and spoons.
