Chair Lift @ Lowell Superior Courthouse Removed

Late last week contractors removed the handicapped chair lift at the Lowell Superior Courthouse. The lift has been in place making the upper floors of the courthouse accessible for the 17 years I have been here and longer. It is no longer needed now that the new elevator is operational.

This morning is the first time I got a good look at the 120 year old marble staircase without the lift. Although marred by the holes needed to mount the lift, its beauty is still obvious.

Below are pictures showing the mounting holes on both the side of the staircase and the floor, as well as the stunning marble staircase side and striking wood and metal handrail.
