Old Glory Wolseley Engine by 

Wolseley Stationary Engines: the first model released in 1909 up until engine production ceased in 1975.
The stationary engines built by the Wolseley Company, initially mainly for driving sheep-shearing machinery, but also used in many other applications, notably for irrigation.

Not completely sure if it’s exactly the same machine, because the owner wasn’t there at the moment to ask the “Technical details” :) It was raining so hard during the partly open air Historical festival in Raalte in the Netherlands.

Equipment: Eyes, hands, mind, soul, Canon Eos 30D
