the pump

One can find lots of pumps like this around Amboise.  In fact, we even have one as do our neighbors.  Ours doesn't work anymore and I'm guessing most of them don't but they are such interesting reminders of bygone days.  For this pump, I was pleased to see it's little friend standing nearby to add some needed additional color to this shot.
