Antique Water Pump

Found this antique water pump in St. Jacobs on Sunday when we took a walk around the Village. It’s water pumping days may be over but it’s rustic beauty endures. Anyone know what the BT stands for? I did a quick search but could not find anything.

    BT probably stands for Beatty Brothers, they manufactured pumps at their Fergus ontario plant.
    The factory is now know as GSW , General Steel Wares and is still located in Fergus .

      We have been looking for this exact pump for quite a long time. Our historic site “Stephansson House” has one but it has a number of break in the casting and we are looking to replace it. If anyone know if this pump can be purchased it would be appreciated.
