How does a ratchet spanner work?

A ratchet spanner or wrench uses a mechanism which allows an open-ended, flare or ring head to turn a fastener in one direction but not the other while remaining fitted to the fastener head. By turning the spanner over or flicking a lever, it changes the direction of movement.

Does this spanner feature a reversing lever?
