Sorry Danny, This "Thing" can size up what is suitable for the health of customers, and the only thing it will serve you is a small Lettuce and Tomato crisp bread sandwich! :( I never realised you were overweight? :) cheers scally.

What a cool shot! I recently saw a display of old sewing machines of many different manufactures... but unfortunately they did not lend themselves to a shot like this. Pure genius! Like!

Well spotted, Scally! My mum used to have one of these. Never thought I would see a photo of it!

Regards, Brian.

Brian I spot lots of funny shots standing outside shops waiting for her to come out. She was in here for 1/2 hour before I saw this shot. They've got a branch in Brighton, and strangely I could not get a good reflection from it? Did you know that the biggest Singer Plant in the World was in Clydebank, where they built the Queen Liners and all that is left there now is the Rail station :( cheers scally.

Are you joking? AGKM, LOL. In 1885 the Singer factory in Clydebank Scotland, employing 5000 workers, and was their biggest plant outside America, Up to 1943 it had produced 36 million machines. very nice to have you visit and many thanks for the YS, even if Pano. did not select it. :-(. best regards scally.

Hi Joni, I think most families that could afford them, had one, I remember seeing them being used by street tailors on the streets of Calcutta (Kolkata), many thanks and best regards scally.
