Model. This type of crane was common in the 18th century. It was operated by men, horses or donkeys walking inside the wheel, or sometimes by means of a rope outside the wheel. It was used to move cargo or masonry. This model is asociated with Dr Stephen Demainbray (1710-1782), a famous science lecturer of the 18th century.
