hand pump

I wonder if it works or is it just for decoration.

  2. The village pump used to be a feature of every village near here. Many have been preserved but I don't know of any that still works.

  4. I haven't seen one of these hand pumps in a long time. They can give your arm a good workout.

  9. I hope this pump still works. In case of an emergency without water supply, this helps people to continue daily life.

    We have a red one but it is just decoration.
    Haven't found a place to put it yet at Happy Trails but we will.

  22. Looks pretty functional, I hope you went up and pumped a bit. Sometimes they do need a priming.

  23. Maybe it does work to water the lawn it is in. Looks lovely!
