hloywood A lift and force pump at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, nr Holywood, Co. Down, supplying both a stopcock and a (plastic) delivery pipe - which suggests that it is in working order. The pump is fitted with a feed-through air vessel to even out the flow of water, and also features a chained drinking cup. The function of a small metal peg with a looped end which seems to impinge upon the fulcrum is a puzzle.

Markings: None visible.

Manufacturer: Unk.
