Great photo ,l think it is a steam driven feed water pump ,one end of the piston rod is driven by the steam from the boiler while the opposite end is the pump,the conecting rod & fly wheel is there to start it off & keep the piston rod moving back and forth smoothly. Had a similar sort of pump years a go ,it was a vauxhall [not the car ] brand.
