The development of the sewing machine made mass the production of clothing much easier and faster than had been possible with hand stitching. The ‘Scientific American’ periodical stated in September 1860, that “…after the Spinning Jenny and the plough, the sewing machine was the most important invention that has ever been made since the world began.” This leaflet is advertising ‘Eldridge & Co’, a sewing machine repair shop.
