What on earth…..??

Recently, I came across this item in a display yard in a museum. I was intrigued and amused to find out what it was. It is missing some wheels, but is otherwise intact.
Here is the challenge…
Do you know what this is?

A mysterious item… do you know, or would you like to guess what it is?

And secondly, do you know where precisely it was used?
Here is a clue.

The “Big Hole” at Kimberley, South Africa

For those who do not know about famous South African places, this is the ‘Big Hole’ at Kimberley. This hole was dug by hand by prospectors looking for diamonds!

  1. I don’t believe I know what this is. Might it be something prospectors moved mud in?
    Happy Sunday. πŸ™‚
