Mower, Hand

About this object

This is a hand lawn mower used at the Calcium Cemetery at Isla Bank. It has a finger blade cutting bar with a unique and interesting drive that transfers the circular drive from the two wheels to the horizontal cutting system. It did not necessarily have a reliably straight cut and being hand operated was very labour and time intensive.
