    Some of my smaller rules and calipers can be seen in the first photo.

    The rules in the second picture are all 4 fold 24" except one 2 fold 2 foot advertising rule (at top) from Caldbeck & MacGregor Wine Merchants, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

      The architect's rules have beveled edges. Four of the rules, including the two Lufkin 3 fold ones, have integral levels. All of the arch joint rules are of the earlier (pre-1912 or pre-1915) type.
