    When I was a boy we had no electricity on our farm. Rain water running off our house roof was collected in a cellar cistern, which was merely a large stone room about an 8′ cube. This water was pumped from the cellar cistern up to the ground floor sink and used as dish water and for laundry purposes. The pump you are showing was a cistern pump used for that purpose. It was short as it was mounted on a counter beside the sink.
