    I know it's a container with one wheel and two handles, but I can't get the meaning of:

    "...she'd sit by the fire in the meal shed, blowing at the turf with the wheel-bellows, watching the sparks." Maybe it has another meaning here. The story happens in England, circa 1920.

    Thank you.

    Era um tipo de fole para avivar o fogo, movido a manivela. Olha um aqui e outro aqui.

    "a container with one wheel and two handles" is a wheel-barrow (carro/carrinho de mão)
