taken 9 years ago, near to Woodingdean, Brighton And Hove, Great Britain

Old well - Falmer Bottom
Old well - Falmer Bottom
All very knocked about, but the part on the right looks like a wellhead, the central part like a pump, and the other part like a winch. All very perplexing. Made by F.E. Myers & Bro., Ashlan.... [?] U.S.A. The pump-like part has also cast on it "Self-oiling bulldozer". A little further research found that the two brothers Francis and Philip set up the company in 1870 in Ashland, Ohio, and the company is still there, producing pumps and trading as Myers, although now part of the Pentair group.
