In honour of the time change this weekend (it's worth losing an hour if we get more sunshine, isn't it?) I thought I'd show some of my postcards of the Niagara Floral Clock. You can find it on the Niagara Parkway across from the Adam Beck Generating Station near Queenston.
This one shows the crests of the ten provinces. I'm not sure why the two territories were not included to make it easier to read the time - maybe that would have been too crowded and difficult to see the details. I also am not sure why they are shown in a seemingly random order.
The clock was built in 1950 by Ontario Hydro after the chief engineer made a visit to the Princes' Street Gardens clock in Edinburgh
Since 1977, the clock has been maintained by the Niagara Parks and the design is changed each year. you can read about the history here
