There is also http://www.survivorlibrary.com/library/sewing_machine_gazette_vol_9_no_131_1881.pdf which I believe was the London? precursor to the United States Sewing Machine Times. It also includes other "domestic appliances."

I believe there are over 400 "Sewing Machine Times" scanned and can be found beginning at https://digital.hagley.org/islandora/object/islandora:1979719 I think I may have about 300 of them downloaded.

Talk about a treasure.  Thank you for sharing these.  I have begun journaling in earnest this year and these will be lovely for art journaling.  I just printed on regular copy paper.  Next time I am at a craft store I will definitely get a sepia colored paper for this.

Thank you "sew" much.

Thanks Janey for a wonderful read and a view back in time. Amazing how expensive sewing machines were, and the variety available.
