Fredericton New Brunswick Canada Vertical Declining Dial 397
A vertical declining dial 7 x 7 feet with parged cement face and 5 foot wrought iron gnomon. Plaque on wall reads "The sundial at the top of this wall is a faithful reconstruction of the original which Frederictonians used during the 1800s and early 1900s. The shadow cast by the gnomon (style) onto the dial accurately displays local apparent solar time …" An equation of Time is included on the plaque to determine mean time.
