Under the wooden floors of the shop is the original soil grade. With Jordan Creek just outside the complex, some accumulation of water is inevitable. This unit is a reciprocating water pump powered by a small steam engine (linear, not revolving). It would have removed this seepage before it accumulated.
See Surviving World Steam - Lizards for more info on steam pumps.
