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.”

Pompe à Eau

Pompe à Eau

While travelling in France, we stayed with friends in the French countryside just outside of Paris. It was a beautiful cottage home. I enjoyed wandering the grounds exploring the gardens and photographing this water pomp or Pompe à Eau.

I have put a sepia colour to indicate that it is from an older time and generation.

Old Water Pump

Old Water Pump

On a dark, gloomy day I came across an old water pump beside an old relic of a building. It is still there despite having been abandoned a long time ago. I found it while driving in the Interlake Region of Manitoba, Canada.
