Re: Re: Any Wall Sundials On Irish Buildings
First ‘public’ vertical gnomon dial that I’ve seen.
To work out the time on this more complex dial, people will have to spend more time mulling around the circus. This in turn attracts more tourists in – to see what they’re doing – and you have a concentration point (and rest & refreshment point) in the city’s tourist circuit.
But vertical gnomon dials are not practical for wall or garden dials as people will not have the time or inclination to learn about them.
Personally, I’m not too gone on these old ‘Father Time reminder lines’ that are often inscribed on sundials.
But that is a designer’s issue.
