Albanene was a line of durable transparent prepared tracing paper created by K&E. This item is seen on page 65 of the 42nd edition catalog of 1954 with this product number. Circa 1956-1962, K&E re-numbered its product line and it was re-numbered 46 1517. When re-numbered is unknown at present. See objects 2009.006.0240 for the same item with the 46 1517 product number. This same pattern was available on other papers and different colors in metric measurements as well as standard U.S. measure.
K&E main office and factories were in Hoboken during the period this item was made, but it is possible that this was made, stock and shipped from a subsidiary company located outside of Hoboken.
