Corner Brace - Used with brace and bit

Can't find any identification on it, am going to look closer however, sometimes they're hard to find.

Don't know the age, my dad, born 1896, had many, many, antique tools, of course they weren't antique to him.

When we built our cabin in Colorado, 1948, I was just 8 years old then, we had no power tools. In 48 an 8 year old knew how to work. We stayed in an old white 10x10' army tent. Dad a cot, me a piece of canvas on the ground. Bathed in the creek, place some rocks to make a pool, didn't stay in long, water up there was ice cold, even in the Summer.

I hammered nails out of used lumber, straightened them on piece of RR track, and sorted in can's by size. Mixed all the concrete by hand in a long box dad made.
No ipod, tripod or any pod or TV or computer. Mom drove up from Greeley, usually once a week, and wow did we look forward to that meal. Dad and I just fried everything on a small wood burning stove, lots fried taters, hot dogs, anything that would go it the skillet.
The kids around my grand kids now, would probably have lasted about 10 minutes working with my dad. I suspect they wouldn't care much for his "time outs".
Didn't really know what to say about it, so I rambled on.
