Wordless Wednesday #125- White Treadle Sewing Machine

My oldest daughter surprised me with this gift for Mother's Day!
Back view
 She was attracted by the lively painted designs.
That was the first thing that caught my eye.
Then there were some more interesting features.






 Foot Lift
 As always I noticed how it was made entirely of steel.
Things were made to last back then.
They didn't need landfills.

  1. So true about things lasting then. My grandmothers sewing machine is still working in her house. Unlike the products today which are disposable =(
