    I would assume/hope they used air to blow the dust off.

    This just plain odd. Looks staged, they really are not in 'turn-out' gear, regardless the era. So, dusting seems logical, barely. Can't get my head around what term to google with for some enlightening tidbit either. And very probable their pump is centrifugal or bellows, but that hose is flat as a pancake.

    I don't know how they do things in Poland but I'll wager that Getty and the Guggenheim would never blow dust off any artwork on display only to have it redeposit on another. Small, delicate, handheld, low-flow vacuums yes, but never brass fire hose nozzles near a Caravaggio.

    I assume the seat is so high because that is what was needed to drive a team of horses and they just motorized the wagon.

    Get a load of the company logo on what is likely the battery compartment. Might have 7-8 letters! A good laugh, but not enough to decipher. Ralphxyz is probably right, they motorized or used design of a horse drawn chassis. Built for serious loads though, I see rivets, I-beam and channel, plenty of iron!
