Early to Bed and Early to Rise
"Early to bed, and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise" was published by Benjamin Franklin who has also sometimes been mistakenly been credited for the concept of Daylight Saving Time.
Daylight Saving time was implemented in England around 1916 and was conceptualised by New Zealand entomologist George Vernon Hudson who found the after-hours daylight extremely useful to his hobby of collecting insects. Here are some interesting clocks we came across during our apartment visits around London.
