What year do you guess that pump and culvert system was installed?

Are they going to get it cleaned up and working again to show some of Florida's history? :florida:

Not sure how old -- I am guessing back to the 1950s at least.
Somebody told me there was a PTO hook up on it, that that's
what powered it. Probably been 70 years I bet since it last run,
but amazing how well it stood up to test of time. :salute:

That's why I asked! It looked like it would not take much at all to get it working
