Description
This a lovely period Edwardian barograph by W F Stanley, Railway Approach London Bridge Se. The hardwood case in polished figured light Oak, has a hinged, 5-glass lid and there is a slim chart drawer to the base. The movement is of the classic quality French style which has the steel angled bracket protecting the pen arm pivot. The instrument comes with a most interesting chart record, with remarks, covering the week commencing 11 October 1987 and showing the dramatic plunge in barometric pressure which resulted in the Great Storm later that week over the 15/16 October - a memorable piece of nostalgia directly recorded on this instrument. Includes a selection of weekly charts, a fresh bottle of ink and a reproduced pamphlet by Negretti & Zambra describing operating instructions and how to interpret chart records.
