Caption: Scaling ladder by Leonardo da Vinci. This was designed to provide soldiers with an easily transportable ladder that could reach the top of fortress walls. The ladder would have been elevated up and down by a crank and large toothed gears. A similar system is used by modern day fire-fighters.
