Tom came upon some old photos we thought would be fun to post. They are from a museum in Germany . It used to be a working factory that was turned into a museum. It looks like the sewers just got up and walked away for break time .
The machines were powered by a line shaft,running underneath the tables.This means that all the machines were driven off one motor that was probably outside the sewing room. Each machine had an individual clutch, so that the operator could control their separate machine
