This man says he doesn’t speak/understand English, but quietly laughed at all my uninterpreted jokes.

He learned to sew by observation. Practicing on paper whenever he could sneak a seat at a machine. Now he spends most of his days at his Singer watching the world go by through his front window. Despite no electricity, he creates incredibly precise work using a treadle sewing machine & a coal fired iron.
