A Diagram Exhibiting the difference of time between the places shown and Washington
A map of time and how relative it was. If it is high noon in Washington, what time is it in Rome (5:58), Cleveland (11:41), or Ft. Wayne (11:22)? Well, before the railroads made us standardize time into something easier, it used to be that a surveyor would make a line in the direction of true north at the center of town, and when a standing stick at the bottom of the line cast a shadow directly on that line, you knew you could set the towns' clocks to noon. But you could imagine the complications once trains started travelling in hours what once took days. It wasn't until 1883 that this changed. This time map shows foreign and US cities, small and large and their relative time.
