SRN 3436 Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire
A very busy dial by John Smith of Stockton on Tees, with four mottoes in English, also Greek and Hebrew mottoes, an inscription, and an eight line paraphrase of Psalm xix by the poet Addison. Room is still found for hour rings for New York, Australia and Middlesbrough, and a diagram of the solar system. The third picture is of a dial only known from an unidentified guide book, but said to have been at Castle Howard in North Yorkshire. It may have been Smith's working model for the Middlesbrough dial. Mrs Gatty has much to say about the life of John Smith.
