Winch: "A mechanical device used to pull in (wind up) or let out (wind out) or otherwise adjust the tension of a rope or cable. In its simplest form, it consists of a spool (winch drum) and attached hand crank."
Well, I think this is the simplest form! Found in Alesund, Norway. I had hoped to get a brochure picture of these buildings' reflections, but the conditions weren't perfect enough and I only had one chance.
