Hand-cranked 1875 sewing machine. Best viewed on black.

There's even a musical link to go with it.

Explored.

A great old treasure, George. I wonder whether it still works. I think my sister still uses my mother's old one which had a treadle but I saved to buy mine new when I did my first job..

It still turns and is complete apart from missing one of the plates near the foot, Monica. I'd think it would still work OK if that was replaced.

And then all it would need is some cotton on that reel. The main problem I've found with sewing machines is the tension. When it gets wrong it's difficult to get it right sometimes.

Eventually, hand cranked machines became tiny, for the use of little girls who were not allowed to deal with electricity...
