    Looks to me like either they've reversed the picture or she's sitting at the wrong side of the machine. It's hard to tell.

    I've printed and published a lot of pics. This isn't reversed, just posed incorrectly. Like a VSM jigsaw puzzle I have seen.

    The presser foot lever and tension dials and bobbin winder are all reversed too, so it can't be just posing wrong? I'm thinking it is a reversed photo...?

    I have to agree with NZquilter - this is a reversed photo, not bad staging. Well, there is bad staging as well (behold the two spools of thread on top), but the pillar is on the left because the photo is reversed.

    I've never seen a left-pillar domestic machine. Any pictures I've seen online were reversed (often on Craigslist from using the wrong camera on their phone). There are a couple of shoemaking machines with a left pillar, but they're very rare.

    It was probably printed the first time with a reversed negative and no one ever caught it.

    It does kinds throw your mind through a loop. I had to copy and paste it, then reversed it. And yes, it is a mirror image.
