Henry Singer – The Old Machine That Will Not Die

I love this shot of my Grandma’s old Henry Singer sewing machine.  The intricate detail on the metal parts would never be found today on a machine for the home.  Can you imagine your lawn mower with shiny silver etching or gold colored embossing on your toaster oven these days.  There was something artistic about the way things were made in the past.



By the way, does anyone know where you can buy a new belt for a machine like this?  Mine has turned brittle.
