Do old electric drills only go forward or is there a way to make them go reverse? I could not find switch anywhere on a old drill at g-sale

The drill looked pretty old but it only went one way

Old electric drills that are able to move forward and also reverse must have a reversible action feature. They also have operational forward and reverse switches near the trigger which toggle left or right when controlling it. If the drill does not have the switches, then it is not possible to make it go reverse.
