This standalone document is taken from the author’s comprehensive horological study, American Backcountry Tall Clock; it is a collection of "time setting" information and addendum's in one document. Photographs and charts along with explanatory notes tell about one aspect of a brilliant craftsman’s work while living in the backcountry of early America.
Read on to learn about Noon Marks, Sundials, and how they were used to set time before smart phones, dial phone time service, and bells pealing the hour from church and town hall belfries. Chandlee’s customers will surprise you, including an important Founding Father, Chief Justice John Marshall.
The focus is determining the correct time. This at a period when only a few owned clocks. It was before the advent of time zones, and when people were likely buying their first timepiece.
