A Most Ingenious Device

This is the interior of the Singer Sewing Machine shop on The Quay in Waterford. Fantastic machines on display, and an engraving of the Singer Factory and a framed Russian Singer advertisement.


Gerry Ward kindly confirmed that the large framed image of the factory is at Kilbowie Street, Clydebank in Scotland, with its gorgeous clock tower. No excuse for Singer employees who lived nearby to be late for work! Gerry also translated our Russian Poster which reads "Компания Зингеръ Швейная машиъі" which means "The Singer Sewing Machine Company".
