JFK ASSASSINATION ARGUMENTS
JOHNNY HARTLEY SAID:
I have repeatedly made the point that on the floor diagrams of the depository there is another lift apart from the two side by side, and say that that other lift is never considered as a possible escape route, and ask why it isn't.
DAVID VON PEIN SAID:
The "lift" (elevator) that was situated near the front of the Depository Building could only be used by people on the first, second, third, or fourth floors. There was no way to board that elevator from the 5th, 6th, or 7th floors.
And according to the TSBD schematics found in Commission Document No. 496 [see the three links below], the shaft of that elevator only went up to the fifth floor. But the diagram for the fifth floor says "No opening to elevator shaft on this floor".
DIAGRAM OF 4th FLOOR
DIAGRAM OF 5th FLOOR
DIAGRAM OF 6th FLOOR
So, obviously it could not have been used to aid an escaping assassin who was shooting from the sixth floor (unless that assassin walked down two flights to the fourth floor and then utilized the elevator at the front of the building to take him the rest of the way down to the first floor).
Side issue on this "elevator" topic.....
Considering the fact that a passenger elevator was located in the front of the Book Depository Building which could be accessed from the fourth-floor offices, I wonder why Victoria Adams and Sandra Styles didn't use that elevator to go from their 4th-floor office to the first floor after the assassination, instead of walking all the way to the back of the building to use the stairs? That question was never asked of Miss Adams by the Warren Commission. I wonder if author Barry Ernest asked Adams that question? ~shrug~
