W. C. Herrington  -  Well No. 1  -  Circa 1946
Take note of the 5 gallon bucket on top of the Rods in the well -- That was so when you were out on the highway and far away from the well you could see if the well was going up and down and know the engine was running and the well was being pumped.

The 55 gallon drum on the side of the shed was full of water and was the radiator for the 1 cylinder Fairbanks Morse engine.
