Artist's Description

Dumbwaiters are small freight elevators (or lifts) intended to carry objects rather than people. The mechanical dumbwaiter was invented by George W. Cannon, a New York inventor.
A simple dumbwaiter is a movable frame in a shaft, dropped by a rope on a pulley, guided by rails. Before electric motors were added in the 1920s, dumbwaiters were controlled manually by ropes on pulleys.
This one is at Erddig in North wales and connects the kitchens to the dining room, ensuring the Masters dinner was always delivered ’ot
