Mystery pump info request

I would like to know what sort of pump this is. Is it a pressure-type pump, as it does not seem to have very big pistons, to get higher volume?

It was used to pump water from a creek, but there was a much larger Ruston-Hornsby pump there too, which was used to fill a plunge-dip to dip sheep.
