Default rescued tredle machine

OK i have never had much to do with vintage machines. I rescued my mom's old treadle sewing machine from a shed and am not sure if i have a real treasure or just a sentimental treasure. I have the cabinet, and all the works i think. Including original shipping box. it has a MW on the machine and is gray. it is a model number 711-B and serial number is 27068. Suggestions on where do i start searching. I took some pictures but haven't transfered from my phone yet.

I am guessing MW is Montgomery Ward. Here's some info from ismacs.net

I'm sure there's more out there, but like Sears I'm guessing the machine was manufactured by another company and badged MW. Pictures will help when you can get them.

I couldn't find a White treadle with that model number. Most of the White treadle machines that I have seen are black with decals. So looking forward to seeing yours. Treadles are fun. I didn't think I would ever treadle, but when my sister kept telling me how she enjoyed sewing with hers, I finally tried. It really is fun. My sister doesn't sew with hers as much as she would like, as it takes longer. She has made me a couple of things with it. It was the machine she learned to sew on.

Looking forward to seeing pictures of yours. It warms my heart when one keeps the machine "in the family."

We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

Some additional info regarding reducing iimages at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of quilt block ID?

Default treadle machine pictures

I have pictures but can't figure out how to post- it said to reply their would be a clip to attach--not here? Photo is too large to load i guess. Mom said she thinks it is a Montgomery Ward machine bought in the fall of 1948. She is 99 now and still sewing. She has macular and is struggling but still sewing.

The "upload" button (or whatever it's called) does not show when you upload photos. You have to scroll over to the right to find it or hit the "restore" icon (the little icon next to the red X up in the right hand corner) to see it.
