Does anyone know anything about this ruler which belonged to my late Dad?
It has STANLEY Trade Mark, LONDON on it, and also
PATENT Made in England.
It's 26" long & 2" wide.
On one side it has 1/8 and 1/4 inch = 1 foot and on the other 3/8 and 1/2 in = 1 foot.
It's wood and what?!!
It's made out of some sort of creamy white celuloid-type material I think, with a strip of very smooth pale wood down the middle on each side.
I would love to know what the white material is?
And also when it might have been made?
I can't find one like it anywhere on the internet, so any info, or advice on where to look to info would be greatly appreciated!
