An old water pump. This was how we got water from the farm up on the "Adams farm" when we were enjoying time at the lake with the Cunningham Clan.

This magnificent and unique medicine chest was made for Vincenzo Giustiniani, the last Genoese governor of the Island of Chios in the eastern Aegean Sea, in the 1560s. On a box from the middle drawer is painted the symbol of Chios - a black eagle above a three-towered castle. The chest contains 126 bottles and pots for drugs, some of which still have their original contents!
