One Hour in the Past – E106 Daylight Savings Time

E106 – Daylight Savings Time

Have you ever noticed that a simple information search can lead you in strange and wonderful directions?  As in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, historical research can lead you down a winding rabbit hole that might take you off your original path and lead you to new and amazing historical places!

This podcast series starts with that premise!

Adrian Petry, Visitors Services Coordinator and Kathleen Powell, Supervisor of Historical Services and Curator, both from the St. Catharines Museum and Welland Canals Centre, have challenged each other to explore the weird and wonderful places that one hour of research on a topic will take them.  Join them as they share their findings!

On this episode…

Adrian and Kathleen look back in time at the world of clocks, bells, the history of daylight savings, and end up down the rabbit hole in a couple of weird places. Use that extra hour we get this weekend to listen to the Season Finale of One Hour in the Past.
