Somerset. 10. For sentimental reasons only.
For sentimental reasons only.
When I see simple devices like this, I do think about my father. I am, one would call it in the UK, a mechanical engineer. My father was a florist. As child I did love to turn those kinds of levers, with gears, rods and counter weights, opening 10, maybe 20 windows of a greenhouse at the time. Seldom you will find them freshly paint. No, even those are together with the plants growing brown and green.
Yes, I am a sentimental jerk.

aesthetic quality of their own. So does this ancient worm gear. However, what does it drive?
Nice picture in soft colours and with a morbid charm.
