Classic Australia 1

This design of wind pump is an Australia classic - and while its location  may be a little contrived, just a few hours from Melbourne, I still like it.


You can find more images from around the world at Our World Tuesday.  SM

nice! i like to see them here, too. getting fewer and fewer to find ones that still turn.

Mama Zen said...

I like it, too!

Like TexWisGirl said, they are an endangered species here. Is Comet the popular name brand there? Here it is Aermotor.

Sylvia K said...

Yes, I agree with Tex, we're finding fewer and fewer of these -- particularly ones that actually still function!! Have a great new week, Stewart!!

Revrunner said...

Uhm, we don't have any of these in NoVa. I'd have to check, but they almost certainly would violate some kind of zoning laws. :-)

Margaret Adamson said...

I like it also. We do not have any here as far as I know.

Love windmill photos! I see them scattered throughout the American west.

Montanagirl said...

Oh, I really like it! We still see similar ones to that here in Montana.

Pretty scene, I like the wind pump. I see them here to during our rides in the country! Have a happy day!

I find this wonderful old windmill.
Pity there is not much more of it.

Bob Bushell said...

Great image Stewart, but, could you tell me what it is doing, like wind or power?

Cynthia said...

You don't often see them here anymore either. When you do, it's a partial one on an old abandoned farmstead. I love them.

a mainstay of the US Southwest too

:O)

I like the old windmills like that! We don't have them in Kentucky, but they're more predominant in the western US.

Felicia said...

wonderful windmill. We don't have them in Pa., wish we did.

Linda said...

Neat! When we see one here in Virginia, it's usually preserved for decoration more than for it's use.

That is such an Australian scene.
