That machine looks like my grandmothers Singer sowing machine. I used it as a kid a few times, had to work the pedal on that thing to make it sew.

Mom and Grandma both had the Singer with a manual-pedal. Early 70s they were retro-fit with an electric motor with throttle pedal.

Note to all: I am not certain that the Mercedes Sewing Machine Co. is related to Mercedes-Benz in any shape or form.
