I saw this Ebay listing, which might interest history buffs
and non-electric collectors alike.

According to Alex Taber's comments on Vintage post#23637,
this is the 2nd oldest vacuum cleaner in existence; and
the very first tank pumper!

Is there a reason this vacuum is so overbuilt?
The parts look like heavy brass castings, where other pump vacs are thin sheet metal.
Did this have a specific use? Like on the Titanic or similar ocean vessels?
