The Singer Sewing Machine, No. 66 was built in 1930. With original parts and instruction manual, this is an iconic piece of American, and also New York history. The Singer Company went through a few variations of its name since its founding in 1851 by New Yorkers Isaac Merritt Singer and Edward Clark. The first practical sewing machine for domestic use, Singer took his patents to mass production and his company was the largest manufacturer of sewing machines in the world by 1860. Soon after the company expanded to Europe and to meet demands, their Clydebank factory in the UK was the largest of its kind in the world. During World War I, its labor force was 70 percent women. Today the company has a diverse portfolio of products, including electric sewing machines.

Singer was heavily involved in Manhattan real estate in the 1800s through co-founder Clark, who built The Dakota apartments and other Manhattan buildings in the 1880s. In 1900, the Singer company retained Ernest Flagg to build their New York headquarters, a 12-story loft building at Broadway and Prince Street in Soho, still considered architecturally notable and since restored. Singer Tower at Liberty Street in FiDi was commissioned by then-head of the Singer Sewing Machine Company, Frederick Bourne, also built by Flagg, and held the distinction as the tallest building in the world from 1908-1909. It’s remarkable to have found this machine, let alone so well intact. We met in the foothills of the Ozarks and now she has returned home, for the Singer is a New Yorker.
