It is engraved “1/2 English Foot” with lines of measure (6 inches) on one side and “1/2 Paris Foot” with similar lines and a slightly longer measure on the opposite side. The “L”-shaped ruler is one sided with the “1/2 English Foot” measurements.

Historically the "foot" was a part of many local systems of units, including the Greek, Roman, Chinese, French, and English systems. It varied in length from country to country, from city to city, and sometimes from trade to trade. Its length was usually between 250 mm and 335 mm.  [jet] [ph:m]
