Folding tape measure

Mètre pliant ayant appartenu à Albert Schweitzer

Did you know that in developing his humanitarian work in Lambaréné, Dr. Schweitzer did more than just wield medical instruments?

Thanks to the invaluable help of his wife and his international colleagues at the bedside, the Doctor was able to design and manage the various construction and extension projects for his “hospital village” himself.

This folding metre, deliberately cut to a point, enabled him to plant it in the ground to make certain measurements more easily.
