I've no idea Kate - I'd hazard a guess at a winch of some sort.

A wonderful image of what looks extremely like a once loved 'Mangle'. Love the depth to the whole composition.

Very well exposed Kate and great Shadows, it does look like the device used for opening lock gates! But not sure.

I asm not really sure, but I can't see why people would go down to the dockside to ring out their washing .
Kate it looks like a wench not the female type.The type to haul in small boats. Its a lovely interesting shotSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

Since this 'winch' is at docks, I'm thinking Trev and Billy have the right idea.
