A christmas wish

OMG...I have been wanting a singer sewing machine for years and years, but I wouldnt pay the money for one....

I finally got one... saved from the crush of death in the metal skip it was like all my Christmases came at once.
 
1929
 
 
what is so special about this sewing machine is the hand crank on the side. With the introduction of electricity, many of these machines were converted to electric by the addition of a motor. The hand cranks almost disappeared. With a motor, you could do twice as much work.When you see a Singer like this one today, it will more than likely have a motor on it--not a hand crank.
