Weekly Photo Challenge: Time

In response to the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Time

Many devices has been invented to measure Time. The study of these devices is called Horology, the art or science of measuring time, a few examples being Clocks, watches, clockwork, sundials, hourglasses, timers, time recorders and atomic clocks.

Here are a few i found ……

Sundial
A sundial is a device that measures time by using a light spot or shadow cast by the position of the Sun on a reference scale. As the earth turns on its polar axis, the sun appears to cross the sky from east to west, rising at sun-rise from beneath the horizon to a zenith at mid-day and falling again behind the horizon at sunset. Both the azimuth (direction) and the altitude (height) can be used to create time measuring devices. Sundials have been invented independently in all major cultures and become more accurate and sophisticated as the culture developed

The castle was bought by Thomas Myddelton in 1595 for £5,000 (approx. £11 million as of 2008)

Servants Quarters
Servants quarters are those parts of a building, traditionally in a private house, which contain the domestic offices and staff accommodation. From the late 17th century until the late 19th/early 20th century they were a common feature in many large houses. Sometimes they are an integral part of a smaller house – in the basements and attics, especially in a town house, while in larger houses they are often a purpose-built adjacent wing or block. In architectural descriptions and guide books of stately homes the servants’ quarters are frequently overlooked, yet they form an important piece of social history, often as interesting as the principal part of the house itself.
