Diverting the stream

Taken at a creamery in Iceland. This is apparently where Lurpak butter was made fight up until the late 1940s. This old gent tends to the cottage and showed us how the water from a nearby stream was diverted to spin the water wheel (see previous picture in stream) and generate electricity and turn gears! Good ol' fashioned simple engineering at its best.
