Somehow, although he is the smallest office boy around the place, none of the other lads pick on him. Scuffling and fighting almost has ceased since Kerensky came to work. That's only one of the nicknames of Leo Kobreen, and was assigned to him because of a considerable facial resemblance to the perpetually fleeing Russian statesman, and, too, because both wore quite formal standing collars.

Description
Architects and engineers use a particular, very regimented script for formal drawings. This is for legibility purposes and is known as Draftsman's Hand, Engineer's Hand, or Architect's Hand. The same script is often used in pre-1950's book illustrations, when they were all done by hand. This font attempts to replicate one such example, from a set of blueprints (or cyanotypes) made by the British War Office during World War I. The letter sizes are a bit irregular, but this font is still an excellent choice to label diagrams and technical blueprints for that hand-drawn, 1950's look.
