Travel Theme – Numbers

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is Numbers ….

Prague Astronomical Clock
At the outer edge of the clock, golden Schwabacher numerals are set on a black background. These numbers indicate Old Czech Time (or Italian hours), with 24 indicating the time of sunset, which varies during the year from as early as 16:00 in winter to 20:16 in summer. This ring moves back and forth during the year to coincide with the time of sunset.

Thiepval Memorial – Somme Battlefield, Northern France

  1. Thank you for the explanation of the clock in Prague. We were there this summer and puzzled – without success – on how to read / interpret the clock.
    Your picture of the clock is considerably better than any of mine! 🙂
