Ever wondered what the view from the top looks like? From the perspective of the Baldwin Flyer, the famed pulley0and-crank basket system installed at Stout’s, you’re looking at it. As an extra touch, the baskets have been wrapped in holiday paper and bows. Children have long been entertained by the baskets that convey shoes–wrapped or not–between the mezzanine level and shop floor. Weeeeeee! Have you seen these for yourself? When was the last time?

Bought my last pair of dress shoes at Stouts downtown!
I remember being on the second floor and seeing the basket system up close when I was a youngster. What fun seeing it many years later.
By any chance do you know if this Baldwin was part of the Baldwin piano company?
Thanks for article
Seems like a remote possibility, but little information has been found on the device, which is a bummer.
