Default Help identify heart shape handle water pump?

Can anyone tell me possibly the maker of this large hand pump? Very interesting unit and has no name or casting numbers anywhere? The back of the board is hard to read and I can make out possibly "Boston" in very unique script. Appriciate if anyone knows anything of this unit and steer me in direction of the year it was built also. Thank you

I dont have a clue! neat pump though. there is a old run down house about 1/4 mile down the road that has two hand pumps, one has pat dates in the 1880's the other i dont remember. i was looking at the one behind the house and thought i wonder if its froze up? nope! after several strokes it felt like it may be doing something, a few more strokes and water shot straight out the top of it! probably just needs some seals. It was a experience i will not forget! first experience with a old hand pump.
