This chapter focuses on the history of the quarter of Doqi, with an emphasis on the life-world of a building and the elevator around which a multitude of stories are woven. The chapter engages with the work of Stephen Graham on elevators. The question of multiplying elevator incidents and everyday interactions in the neighbourhood are discussed. The chapter also addresses the topic of elevators in one Egyptian film and focuses on Naguib Mahfouz’s novel Modern Cairo, which takes place in the neighbourhood of Doqi.
