1896 - 1940s
Pickerings now made electric lifts.
These lifts are VERY rare. Here is one in some flats in Hayes.
These lifts are wonderfull classics, but are now quite rare. There used to be some great 1960s pickerings in Co-op department stores (Co-op have now closed down the department stores) I don't know if any have suvifed.
Pickerings have now moved on to making more modern but a bit generic lifts. There modern lifts don't seem to be that popular, there are not many arround.
