Dry well in yard

This well was dug in our yard by my wife's Dad or hired help I am thinking around 1940 something. The water level goes up and down with the water table and how much rain we have had. The top is narrower than the bottom so when I floated a 50 gallon plastic barrel on the surface of the water this spring the barrel was actually above the top of of where my hand is resting. Due to an extremely dry year it has dropped to the current level.
