made in Australia 1950s
Since I have – in the olden days- drafted using old fashion timber scales – and also love dressmaking – HOW MUCH do I love these oldy-timey timber rules?
Here we have a dressmakers square, a triangular scale ruler and – a ruler. All in solid timber. Beautifully made and still useful. Made to last. Increasingly rare to find now- [and now all made in plastic] I have teamed the three timber rulers with a fabulous 50s packet of photographic corners.
The three rulers are for sale: $AU75
Reminds me of my 1970s primary school days 🙂
me too: isn’t nostalgia a wonderful thing?
Yes, it’s funny how just a common object from the day makes you look back so fondly. I look back at primary school with fondness, but I’m sure I didn’t love it at the time!
