I’d like to introduce you to
a lovely old lady
her name is Annie
and she comes from the Clyde, Scotland
Annie has been special to me for many years but I didn’t
ever know how useful she could be ..
well, 1920 is a long time ago and as they
say a lot of water has gone under the bridge since then.
King George the 5th was on the throne …..
made his first appearance in the Daily Mail …..
and Movie Stars were
R E A L ….
Yes, a lot of water has gone under the bridge ….
without further ado ….
isn’t she beautiful?
They just don’t make things like this anymore.
Singer have records of all their treadle machines and from
the serial number I know she was built on the Clyde in 1920.
Singer’s established a presence in Clydebank that was to last until 1980.
In the late 1920s over 12,000 workers were employed in the factory,
manufacturing machines that crossed the world.
I don’t know what happened to thousands of others but
I know Annie belonged to my Nan who took in washing to pay for her,
and from blogs around I now know that she can and will
All parts can still be bought for the old ladies and from
reading blogs I am sure she will sew beautifully.
she is going to undergo a spit and polish,
a new leather belt ….
and then we shall see what she can do :0)
from Bella and me till next time
as they used to say in Yorkshire …. TTFN
