Looks like a one wheeled reel mower.

 

Probably intended for trimming before the weed whackers were around.

Most of those I've seen have a cutting disc on the side and are meant to be used as an edger.

As others have already said, it is trimmer.

 

You "youngsters" :poke:  :D  had no experience with these, but they were quite common in the '50's & '60's.

 

Pennsylvania (known best for their gang mowers) made trimmers which also had a thin steel disc to be used for edging (as mentioned previously).  ....The disc was mounted on a bracket which was above the wheel.  ....To use the edger, the trimmer was flipped upside-down. 

 

Early trimmers used wood handle.  .....Later trimmers used metal handles.
