It's a period jack, they haven't made them like that for decades. These days vehicle jacks are pressed steel and normally of a scissor type. Interestingly though, the maker Storz is German, as i've owned both Audi's, Beemer's and a Porsche that have them fitted as standard.
'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.

Ahhh... good to know that it's period at least, thanks for the info! It was just sitting there behind one of the buildings in a kind of grown over area, lots of old crates and stuff from what seems to have been a small demolished building or something just sitting there in a pile --- I have to go back to see if there's anything more of interest soon
Nice pics,and Nice find
