Did You Know?
The first escalator England had ever seen was installed at Harrods in London on November 16th, 1898 to much fanfare, fascination and fear ! The moving staircase was such a strange and scary experience for people that Harrods began offering smelling salts and Cognac at the top in order to calm people after their terrifying ride.
