Introducing "Helen" a sweet little Swedish machine with a green kind of crinkle finish. I went to look at an old portable Singer in a wooden box with a key. The Singer was not to my taste, so the vendor offered me this one.
Serial Number C1016591
The bobbin winder.
The throatplate and needle bar.
This lever controls stitch length and reverse.
This machine required a good cleaning and oiling when I brought it home. It is very heavy and sews lovely precise straight stitches forward and reverse.
1951 is the year printed in the manual.
