Broome Wade mystery

Post by stationary stu on Sat Sep 05 2009, 06:05



Ok I think it's a compressor but can anyone confirm it as a compressor or is it a pump?
Sorry the pictures not very clear and its the only pic I have, any help greatfully received.

They must have used them to pump fresh air down the mine, the bigger the mine the bigger the compressor.
