What is this old pump looking device?

Hi All,

So a quick backstory; I just bought my first house (yay!). The house is small but sits on a large lot. It's in a rural section of an urban area; pretty cool. Anyway, there is a small portion of the yard that has a fence around it and in the middle (amongst all the weeds) is some sort of old, what I think might be a pump? Maybe for irrigation. I have ZERO experience in plumbing so I'm really just pulling an idea out of my head. Can any of you gurus identify this thing? I tried to google search the name on the label, but came up empty.

Small follow up - if this is indeed some sort of irrigation pump, does it mean that there could be some underground irragation/sprinkler system that I'm not seeing? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I don't have a clue, but where are you located?
Knowing what area of the county you are in might help others figure it out.

Sorry for the delay, somehow my password got reset and I could not for the life of me get it so I had to reregister.

I'm located in Sacramento, California.
