What is this punctuation mark?

Hey all! I came across a punctuation mark I haven’t seen before, and was wondering if anyone here knows what it is? Some kind of vertical 波ダッシュ ?

I don’t know how to type it, which makes it hard to search the forum for it, so sorry if this has been asked before.

I think it’s the old repeater symbol used in vertical writing.

Ah, that makes sense! This is quoting a passage from like 1914ish. Thank you!
