world pictures Brazil: Salvador

On the other side of the Rio Branco Palace is the famous Lacerda elevator, opened in 1873 to make it easier to move back and forth between the high city (the cidade alto) and the lower city (the cidade baixa). Designed by Antonio Lacerda, the elevator (originally two elevators) was hydraulic at first. It was electrified in 1906, and in 1930 an additional two elevators were added. The waterside building is a Brazilian Navy school.
