In this photo are my Grandmother’s treadle style Singer sewing machine, my Grandfather’s High School yearbook, and a photo of him and his business partner in front of their auto repair shop on Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley, California.

    I’ve got a sewing machine like that. It belonged to my mother. Great still life. Have a great day!

    Very nice still life.

    Like Sherrie, I still have my mother’s old Singer (sadly not a treadle) dating from around 1917. It still works well!
