Theme Thursday - Wheel

This weeks's Theme Thursday is a bit of a cheart for me as I've already posted this picture in a posting I did about the Isle of Man, but it fits this week's theme well.

Laxey Wheel, Isle of Man, c.1905

This water wheel was built in 1854 to pump water from the mineshafts. It also goes by the name of "Lady Isabella", who was the wife of Charles Hope, the island's governor.

As always, 100's of vintage postcards and vintage books and magazines on my web site
