If you keep eye out while cruising rural Alberta you see lots of old pumps. They can be found in fields where houses once stood and in small towns. This one was occupying some vacant space in Beauvallon, Alberta July 23, 2016. There might have been a house to go with it. I have used these in campgrounds otherwise I have never had to pump water. I am sure there are a few people out there who did not miss this particular chore when they were growing up. As an aside when exploring old buildings in the middle of nowhere it is a good idea to keep an eye out for old wells.
