O Elevador, em sua edificação datada de 1930, que agora se tomba, é a culminação de um sistema de transporte urbano de cargas e passageiros que tem sua origem nas primeiras décadas da Colônia. Ele sucede ao Guindaste da Fazenda - um plano inclinado, cuja primeira referência aparece em dezembro de 1609, em uma gravura holandesa, que se guarda em Haia (Holanda). Sua função era transportar mercadorias do porto para a alfândega, situada na Praça do Conselho, atual Praça Municipal. Os holandeses, quando ocuparam Salvador, entre 1624 e 1625, o aperfeiçoaram, duplicando suas trilhas e caçambas e criando um sistema contrabalançado.
