"For international phonecalls, I duppose!"
Chris: Now we're getting somewhere!

The mystery for me is that the young lady with the push chair seems to have balanced a portable telephone on top of all the clobber Tiff. That makes it vulnerable to being half-inched.
Chris: She's playing with fire Chad

It's good to see a couple of ladies giving something mechanical any sort of interest. Very few of my lady friends seems remotely interested in anything like this; they are strange things. This looks to be one of those engines that fires around once every 5 secs or so. A belt from the wheel would have driven all sorts of other tools at one time.
Chris: The mystery for you is the complex women not the simple machine

Haha - a mystery for me, too.
Chris: This might be some sort of pump I suppose Philine..
The dog clearly has no interest in this fine machine.
Chris: Let's face it, it would be very surprising if that were to be the case..

Just a common an garden pumping machine to create power ... noisy smelly and greasy. Modern day wind pumps are far less polluting.
Chris: So sayeth Comrade Green
Curieux c'est sur !!
Chris: Yes indeed Claudine
It appears to be in good shape, Chris. I wonder if it is still operational.
Chris: Yes it was Bev but I don't know what it was doing

We definetly need some explanation!
Chris: I think we all do Anne. It is as much a mystery to me as it is to you..
Whatever it is they appear to be in the firing line
Chris: Yes they do. I think it might be pumping something liquid..
i saw something like this Chris when Bill took us to an antique village near Iron Bridge... it was a steam driven motor that turned the wheel to lift and lower coal cars into the mine shaft....petersmile
