Doorbells and elevators


One of my favorite reappearing signs in Sweden is this one that is posted near many elevators.

Some of the elevators here don’t have automatic doors that open and close for you. Instead you have to pull or push the door open, like going into a regular room.

This sign is telling you that there is a danger of being crushed inside if you transport large objects in the elevator. Something like this garbage can could get hooked on the door frame and, well… I just feel so bad for that poor bastard who met his maker on top of a garbage can.


This is a creative doorbell panel we saw recently on a walk in Stockholm. Instead of naming the apartments with letters or numbers, this building has them named after the months of the year. Very cool.
