Greenwich: The home of time - Livemint

As I entered the gates of the 183- acre Greenwich Park, a splash of green greeted me. Hailing from a country where any half-decent lawn has a “Keep off the grass” board, I was bewitched by the inviting expanse of grass. Across the park, on a little hill, sat the Royal Observatory where the Meridian was. A large clock with a 24-hour analogue dial mounted on the wall outside the gate caught my eye. This turned out to be the Shepherd Gate Clock, the first clock to display Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) to the public in 1852. The display board underneath gave me a little of its history. When the railway network started growing in England in the 19th century, local time across the country had to be coordinated. Charles Shepherd, a clockmaker, proposed a network of clocks whose times would be synchronized—Shepherd, incidentally, also supervised the construction of the telegraph network in India in 1853. The clock that was now before me was one of many... The master clock also transmitted electric pulses by cables to a clock at London Bridge, from where the time was sent out to clocks in the rest of the country.

Beside it there is a loaned pirate copy of the print, made within a year of the publication of the bestselling series, the first time the two have ever been exhibited together. He got most of the details but the debate about it has already moved on: the unfortunate is now agonising about clockwork mechanisms, and has written "the clock does strike by algebra". "Both prints show that the longitude debate is perfectly familiar to both the draftsman, and the members of the public, who will know without any further explanation that the attempt to solve longitude is a huge joke, the problem that will never... John Harrison's perfectly accurate clocks, which became the standard issue marine chronometer, essentially solved the problem.
