Default Whittle Beer Pump?

I came across an interesting peice of historic beer making equipment this weekend at an antique mall here in Cincinnati. I'm trying to figure out exactly what it is and what it could have been used for? Also, trying to decide should I buy it since its obviously rare and kind of cool!

Here it is:


My thoughts are that it could be something that a brewery used for transferring beer from vessel to vessel? I suppose it could have also been used at a bar for serving beer through tap lines? I'm kind of stumped though.

Thoughts?

Just kidding that things looks sweet, do not know what you can do with it but good luck! I would run loads of caustic through that, bleach, sani, followed by loads of water.

Not sure that I would ever want to actually use it for anything. If I did buy it I'd probably just try to get it running for fun, but then it would probably just sit as a conversation peice/decoration. I don't know if my wife is going to go for it though...
