Jesse W. Reno
Jesse Reno was in between the inventions of the first electric railroad and a spiraling escalator he invented the escalator. But still Jesse Reno's genius in inventing the inclined elevator or escalator in 1891 began as an amusement in 1896. In 1899 the Otis Elevator Company finally saw it practical use in 1899 and soon hired Mr. Reno.
The Original Escalator's Evolution
In 1976 The Otis Elevator Company hired Jesse Reno and eventually bought his patent. Later on his patent was bought by United technologies when they bought the Otis elevator company. The escalator has expanded into a moving side walk or the spiraling escalator.
