Image of four men working a pumping apparatus, probably in Central China, for irrigation or draining purposes. According to the original catalog card, the apparatus "consists of an endless chain of paddles moving over two axles and forcing water along a trough in the cuds of which the axles are placed. The power is by treadmill or crank moved by men."
Frank Nicholas Meyer was an agricultural explorer in China for the US Department of Agriculture Bureau of Plant Industry. He received a model of a pumping machine from Dr. S. P. Barchet of Shanghai.
