    The cross braces would be in the way of your legs, so I agree it is just pictured backwards. On some treadles the drawers can slide all the way through, so someone just replaced them facing the backside. I've seen many photos of only the backside of machines!

    $50 isn't a bad price, at least there reasonable.

    It's the drawers, because the holes for the belt to go through are lined up correctly with the wheel. They just put the drawers in wrong. DUH! Don't they realize that all 5 drawers need to slide out in the same direction???

    They are showing the backside of the machine with the drawers in backward. The treadle wheel should be on the right side and drop leaf on the left. The decals on the back of a machine head are usually in much better shape than the front.

    i THINK THAT THEY HAVE THE DRAWERS IN BACKWARDS. YOU COULD NOT PEDDDLE IT WITH THE CROSSBARS THAT WAY.

    I see this often. It tells me the seller knows nothing about sewing machines at all. Sometimes that's a good thing to know.
