Title:
The Dineen Elevator

Author:
Josh Nelson

Category:
Historical/Legacy Equipment (pre-1965)

Description:
In 1892, Sprague formed the Sprague Electric Elevator Company, and with Charles R. Pratt, developed the Sprague-Pratt Electric Elevator. Josh Nelson notes in his elevator blog that in May of 1897 approval was granted to Mr. Dineen to build a 4 story structure on the site at 2 Temperance/142 Yonge Street with an expected cost of $30,000. A fine producer of hats and furs, Mr Dineen desired a building comparable to the New York counterparts. The Sprague automatic elevator is also a feature not to be found in any store in Canada, this being the first time one has been placed in any building outside of New York State.
