After I used internet, reference books leaflets etc. I found these illustrations and pictures which helped me to understand the way instructions have been used for procedural tasks. My collection of examples and reference are as below:
The first picture is a satirical cartoon above the development of workers right in the USA over the last couple of hundred years.
The other pictures show the tying of clothing and scarves for the most fashion effect.
Finally I found some instructions in the house for the kettle, printer and the washing machine with diagrams in them.
