I saw a number of very interesting vintage sewing machines.
The machine below is a very old Singer treadle machine. I am guessing 1920s. The Vancouver Museum of History
This one is a very old walking foot Singer for sewing canvas. It looks like it was a treadle machine. At the Icy Point Hoonah Packing Co. Alaska, which is now a museum. Hoonah is currently the largest Tlingit Village in Alaska.
Vancouver Museum of History – special machine for sewing fur pelts together. Note the curved needle in front which rotates down to catch the side of each pelt to sew together. This fur-interlining machine was used at Dodek Fur Co. in 1935.
Singer sewing machine – used onboard the St. Roch – the ship was built in Vancouver in 1928 for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and used as a patrol and supply ship in the western Arctic for more than 20 years. At the Vancouver Maritime Museum
