Description

Trade advertisement for Singer and Wheeler & Wilson Sewing machines, showing the 'Clas 22K1' and '22K3' models. Isaac Merritt Singer (1811-1875) totally revolutionised the textiles industry when he designed the first practical lock-stitch sewing machine in Boston, Masachusetts, United States in 1850. In 1905, the Singer company acquired the Wheeler and Wilson Manufacturing Company, but continued to manufacture some Wheeler and Wilson models.
