Power steering help

First the car it self is a 1987 NA coupe (not sure about the specific sub model) This question probably has a pretty simple answer that I am missing but how do I tell if my car has power steering? I cant seem to find any sort of power steering pump and the rack itself looks very simple with the only things connecting to it being the shaft from the steering wheel and my tie rods on either side. I would say it clearly has no PS but the previous owner seemed to think it had power steering and it had just gone bad. I'll attach a few photos of the engine bay if that helps anyone.

Thanks for the confirmation. I didnt know there was a model that didnt come with ac, I had just assumed one of the previous owners had deleted it at somepoint.

You indeed have no PS, pretty rare option, I always prefer a depowered rack to a manual rack but a lot of people fancy the manual. My friend swapped it onto his car.
