Singer sewing machine. The name itself is synonymous to a different mentality (you mend and not buy, you make and not purchase), an old lady kneeling, doing things out of love - gifts to grandchildren and alterations for this to look better and more fitting and for that to be more appropriate for an occasion but not the other. Any excuse to express affection really. A thread of love if there was any.
The above is part of my series "Lebanon's history book" about Lebanon's collective memory.
