Hi Everyone - long time lurker, first-ish time poster. I'll be better I promise.
My wife's boss just sent around the above photo with a challenge to guess what the photo is of. I have a strong desire to win, even though I'm not involved.
I've put on my best detective hat, but any help would be much appreciated.
Here's what I know:
The company that made the thing is 'Rodney Hunt' (sort of legible on one of the spokes). They make water control devices.
The photo was taken here based on EXIF location data: Google Maps
I have searched up down left and right on Google, Google images, bing images, etc. I've tried uploading the picture to Google images and comparing it to no avail. I've edited the photo in Photoshop to no avail.
Guesses on the rest of the text:
Fort Hu__ (Huey? Hull?)
1936 as a year?
It looks a bit like the wheels that move cable cars in San Francisco, but Rodney Hull doesn't seem to be in the business?
Thanks very much for any help you can offer
