The old water pump has become a museum piece.

The old hand cranck pump wasn’t complete, so I decided to just clean it and hang it in our garden just for fun.

I like seeing the old handmade wooden piston, which still had the original non-return valve leather on it. The leather that belongs to the seal around the piston had disappeared.

I painted everything with clear varnish and hope to enjoy it for a long time just by looking at it …

Who knows, maybe birds will nest in it as often happened in the past at the old water pump of the Boy Scout group in Vorden.
