St Katharine's Dock: An equatorial sundial, the gnomon points North, its angle with horizontal is 51° 30' 22.07"

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

An equatorial sundial, the gnomon (= the point) points North, its angle with horizontal is 51° 30' 22.07". This is the latitude of the sundial's position.

Taken at 16:14:41 GMT but the time on the clock is 1 hr out because of BST.

The focal plane has been tilted so that it passes over the surface of the sundial.

There is another one in Berlin, Germany.

Wow! This is an awesome photo!

Thanks QuentinUK for correcting my mappings and titles. Feel free to do this with my other photos. We've been carried around with tourbus and tourboat most of our time, and even if I knew that I'll upload these photos to PANORAMIO one day, I couldn't recall the locations of the shots. Actually this would be a great help for me.

Sincerely, Barbara
