Marked with instructions on top and below with diagram of a circle with degrees and numbers. The back of the sheet is handwritten in pencil with the following note: 'Aunt Lucy's directions for making a sun dial'.
Fonctions : Directions on how to create a sun dial were written by Lucy Harris. Lucy Harris was the second youngest daughter of Captain James Harris and Elizabeth Molony. She was born in 1844 and died in 1925. Lucy never married and lived at Benares until 1888 when a number of inheritances allowed her to move to a house in Toronto with her sister, Bessie. Both sisters enjoyed collecting antiques, ceramics and gardening. Lucy died in 1925 and many of her belongings were inherited by her brother, Arthur and are now in Benares Historic House.
