    Beginning is the hand crank model, then comes the leg paddle, after that, modify into semi-auto, now, mostly electric, some comes with auto embroidery template installed. There are also the heavy duty type which still can be seen in those shops selling canvas sheet along Syed Alwi Street.

    About the photo...without reading the write up...most would not be able to tell what is it, only those who had seen it before.

    I have one of these old and a modern one from Singer which can do embroidery back at my home in India. Both of the machines are now converted into Electric motor driven with a manual override using the pedal. Should go back sometime end of this year to get pictures of those antiques

    If my memory serve me correct, last year, there was a post here also on sewing machine, but in colour, that set of pictures seems to have a more rustic and antique quality than this, sorry to dissappoint. Wonder how many can recall.
