Buying shoes has always been in trend from time immemorial. One thing which plays a very important role while buying Shoe is the size of the shoe. CHARLES F. BRANNOCK, realised the importance of this and came up with an invention called “Foot Measuring Instrument”.
He got a Patent protection over this invention on 28th August 1928 with patent number US1682366. The instrument has a base plate having opposing heel abutments thereon and scales for indicating the length of the feet arranged in corresponding position to the abutments respectively, these scales being reversely arranged relatively to each other so that they are readable by the shoe fitter when measuring either the right or left foot.
