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 an American War Department collection of ammunition drawings. 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.
