A new "toy" joins the Happy Room

Having wanted a treadle sewing machine for some time, I found this lovely old Singer, not only a treadle but also fitted out with electricity.
Having done a little research the registration number F6490012 says it was made in Clydebank Scotland in 1915, I am hoping to find out more about it, and replace the belts and electricity cable. I also hope to find a set of extra tools and bobbins as these are missing.
Now I do not need to stop sewing if we have a power cut.. I can just treadle away!
