Pump It Up

I don’t know what it is about old-fashioned water hand pumps, but I really, really like them. I remember trying (playing) with them when I was a little kid. It was fun to see that if you worked at it really hard, it would produce water (results). 

From the MotherEarthNews website, “The pump principle has changed little since its inception, whether for the piston pump invented in 275 BC by Ctesibius, or the rope pump invented in China during the 1st century BC. Hand pumps were still commonly used in the countryside of the United States and Europe in the 19th century.”
