    Received as a gift est. 35 years ago from an employee of Crown Albums (no longer in bus.) It is a very heavy metal, with 3 sides, 2 showing different measurement lengths, and 1 is advertising Crown Albums. Is there a
    specific use for this type ruler, or just a unique design? Thank you for
    help. Joan

      They made picture albums. If they made anything else, not sure. Thomas, thanks for checking on it. It may just be a unique, decorative item with no intended use. It's heavy and never rusts, so maybe paperweight? Joan

      I'm impressed. How did you figure it out. I checked a while back re architecture and never found anything. Joan
