..now silently I mark the hours..
This sundial at University of Toronto commemorates the catastrophic fire of 1890 during which the Tower bell was melted. “Prof. Baker made a dial, bearing the Latin hexameter: Ecce sonans, olim, mutum nunc, auguror horas. (Formerly noisiy, now silently, I mark the hours)”
