An intriguing layout square published in ‘Audels: Carpenters and Builders Guide’ 1923 , 1939, and reprinted in 1947

When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present deilight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for; and let us think , as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when those stones will be held sacred because our hands touched then, and that men will say, as the look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, “See! This our father did for us.”  ~ John Ruskin
