Green cast iron hand pump complete with handle and plunger. Patents show this as 1912 model but was continued to be used for several decades after this.
After the Civil War there were many opportunities for those with ambition and Francis E. Myers was among them. In 1870 Francis and his brother Philip stopped working on their father’s farm and began “The F.E. Myers & Bro. Company”. Francis and Philip both played very important roles in the company’s success. Francis was known as a great sales person and was able to handle the business end of things while Philip was acknowledged as a “mechanical genius “.
Will still work but generally used as garden features.
