harrison_blind02
Two pictures of a Harrison CSM made for blind operatives.
Note the row counter has been specially adapted with 3 bumps for 100
stitches, 2 bumps for 50 & 1 bump for 10. The stitch size setting has been adapted with small posts to enable the blind operator to use it.
In addition the height of the dial adjustment has had slots cut into it to help the user.

This is a picture from an old Harrison book showing a workshop / mill belonging to one of their clients equipped with hundreds & hundreds of Harrison CSMs, as well as the operatives who are all dressed in the standard
issue pinafore. That is other than the bench forewoman, who appears to be wearing a white smock & is to the right facing the photographer.
