Largest Dial Thermometer Built (Jul, 1934)

Largest Dial Thermometer Built

THE world’s largest dial thermometer has recently been installed at Atlantic City. The diameter of the dial is 22 feet; the pointer measures 9-1/2′. The control element is a small helix of bronze tubing filled with a liquid which expands or contracts with each change in temperature.

    That’d make for a pretty nice bank sign — instead of just showing the temperature digitally, have a big ol’ thermometer there.
