Further Information

Mr Josselsohn was a master tailor of clothing for both sexes and worked for as long as possible until the restrictions for Jews came into force. The tape measure was brought over to England by his daughter, Gerda. Gerda came over to England on the 30th of June in 1939. The tape measure has moved to at least 12 places with Gerda.
