The handle is in the operators left hand, and the "drag" is operated by the right hand. The line appears to be going onto the spool from on top, and it's a pretty rough outfit. That is definitely a very large large arbor "bike wheel" reel. But it is DD, like "old hat" stuff. VBG.
I have a pic of a painting from China, circa 1100, which shows a DD LA reel being used fishing a river.
I don't think there is much useful technology from 1100 running around today.
