    I found this wonderful little video, posted on the Vintage Singer's Yahoo group. It shows the decals being applied at Singer's Kilbowie plant around 1934:

    It's pretty neat to see how our beautiful old gals received their decals.

    Very interesting, it looks like it would be a very boring and tedious job but am glad someone did it. Thanks for the post.

    Those sewing machines moving along, overhead, make me nervous :shock: :shock: :shock: I KNOW how heavy those old machines are and I wonder how many women got konked on the head by one of those!
