I’ve been fascinate with windmills for ages. And I especially keep an eye out for them when driving through the Karoo and other arid parts of Southern Africa. The good old-fashioned windpomp adds to our countryside culture and is a picturesque sight on our diverse landscape. It’s also adds to the tongue in cheek humour of many of my road trips. 😀 😉🙊
The Climax “windpomp”, manufactured by Stewards and Lloyds in South Africa since 1942, shows that by 1974 over 150,000 units had been manufactured and by 1996 over 200,000
