At 26 feet tall, the sundial in Ingleside Terraces was once billed by The Urban Realty Improvement Company “the largest and most magnificent sundial
in the world.” In a ceremony complete with dancing “nymphs,”
a live band, midnight supper, and two storks drawing baby buggies , the sundial was inaugurated on the evening of October 10, 1913 before a crowd of some 1500.
