Wind Engines - Windpumps and American style windmills

Although not limited only to America, wind engines in the form of agricultural windmills, (often of metal construction), used for pumping water (and later generating electricity), appeared in their hundreds of thousands across the American landscape. As such, they have their own appeal, and a place in the history of man's harnessing of the power of the wind.
