The main residence at Walnford Park in Allentown, NJ is the Waln House. It was built in 1773 and at the time was one of the larest residences in this part of New Jersey. Within it’s three story structure are many artifacts and antiques of the 1800’s. One of those antiques being this Singer Sewing Machine. I was immediately drawn to the ornamental design on the body of this machine and decided to take a few shots. I didn’t know much about the sewing machine or the Singer company so I went on a webquest and found out some interesting information, mainly that the invention and subsequent patent wars became quite a litigious mess. You can find much of that information here and here if you, like me, like useless information.
