Daily Prompt-Crank


I think it would be fair to say…

 that there are not many or us who remember starting vehicles,

big or small, with a crank handle.

Or how, when cranking, all one’s digits had to be

on one side of the handle in case the engine back fired

as it would damage one’s

thumb if wrapped around the handle.

  1. You suddenly reminded me of the first car my dad when I was very young. It was an old Renault and he used to have to crank it to get it going sometimes. I hadn’t realised how dangerous the activity was until I read your post. No wonder he was so glad to get rid of that old bomb and upgrade to a newer car.
