  Old escalator

This is worth mentioning as well.

There are two flights of escalators to reach the tunnel. Though they are still steep and very long. No wonder the escalator system were built to descent the height of 30m.

What impresses though is the noise those escalators produced. They are wood escalators with quite same design as in the past. The whole set was built in the 1930's, so as the Art Deco building at right bank...

For those who don't fancy trying the ride, there is a lift within the building. Quite huge one since I saw many people entering it, with their bicycles. I read somewhere that it can hold 80 persons...
