Putting the motion back in Motions

The spur for this post follows a flurry of comments on yesterday’s post “Plucking our memories…”

Below is a photograph added which identifies the small “water” to the North (map right side) of Lanes Cove.

The image is found on  pp.17 of Barbara Erkilla’s Hammers on Stone.

Her caption reads:  One Swedish motion operator, near Lane’s Cove on the north side, had a windmill to pump out excess water.

(The image is from the Alexander R. Cheves Collection, slide provided by William Hoyt.)
