Default Steam, we want steam...

I believe this is part of a 19th Century steam engine. It decorates the
lawn of a nearby property. There are still working farms around here,
but if it is a steam engine, I can't imagine what it was used for 100
years ago, at least on a farm. Perhaps it powered a sawmill?

Anyway, it is an interesting piece of gear.
