Left Behind #1

Sewing Machine
Garnet, Montana

Some of the most interesting things to photograph at Garnet Ghost Town are the household items left behind. This treadle sewing machine reminded me of the one my paternal grandmother had in her house. Such a machine would have been a boon to dressmakers and seamstresses making new clothes and repairing them.
