St. Sampson (click on photograph to bring up bigger/better version).
|An enormous pitcher pump, set well above normal reach, atop a rough concrete base on Route de la Passée, St. Sampson. This model is very similar indeed to one at the Folk & Costume Museum in Saumarez Park, Forest, which we were told was probably German in origin. The concrete base has a look of wartime construction, and my guess is that the pump was installed here to fill water carts or mobile water tanks.|
