Old water pump


You can still find a few old water pumps around the city, if you really look. I thought the alligator spout on this one was particularly unusual! For more old stuff, take a look at Rubbish Tuesday.

  2. Isn't this an odd one? I wonder why they chose an alligator for a German spout.
