Long Description:

This water pump, always in working condition, is manual, the pumping system having to be activated with a crank.

It is located along the village church, right on the roadside.

Water a precious symbol of life, today the water arrives at the tap in the house, we could even forget it, just turn the tap and the glass is filled instantly with clean and healthy water , But about fifty years ago the water went to the fountain, the well or the pump.

In our villages we still find these cast iron pumps of this period, detonated by running water, they remain abandoned. They were places of life, each one discussing it with his neighbor.

Cette pompe à eau, toujours en état de marche, est manuelle, le système de pompage devant être activé avec une manivelle.

Elle est située le long de l'église du village, juste sur le bord de la route.

L’eau un bien précieux symbole de vie, aujourd’hui l’eau arrive au robinet dans la maison, on arriverait même à l’oublier, il suffit de tourner le robinet et le verre est rempli instantanément d’une eau propre et saine, mais il y a une cinquantaine d’années l’eau allait se chercher à la fontaine, au puits ou à la pompe.

Dans nos villages on trouve encore ces pompes en fonte de cette époque, détrônées par l’eau courante, elles restent à l’abandon. Elles étaient des lieux de vie, chacun y discutant avec son voisin.
