This fascinating antique diagram shows a multitude of clocks wherein the figures on the dials denote the airline distances from Washington and the clock hands indicate the time in that location when it is 12 o'clock in Washington. Published by Mitchell just fifteen years before standard time was adopted in 1883, this was once an indispensible tool for travelers.
