Don't forget the dumbwaiters. My grandparents' 5 floor walk-up building had 4 floor-thru apartments per floor, and each kitchen had a dumbwaiter behind a wooden door. In the evening, the super rang a bell indicating garbage should be put in the rope-driven dumbwaiter when it arrived. Also, the kitchens had little maid's room behind them, as if the renters could afford maids! I'm pretty sure think their building was pre-WWI !
