In 1851 Isaac Merritt Singer formed the I.M. Singer & Company (later the Singer Sewing Machine Company) after inventing his own sewing machine to remedy a flaw he noticed with traditional models.

This Singer 24 chain stitch sewing machine was manufactured in 1910, and used in the Polan and Katz umbrella factory in Baltimore, MD.
