    • Six designs for a vertical dial on a board fence they all decline slightly east - along with the rest of the City of Miami.

    • A not quite direct west vertical dial for the Ingram residence here in Coconut Grove. The dial has amalemmas on the hour lines, and includes the curves and signs for the Zodiac. The dial declines 88.5 degrees west of south (like the rest of Miami).
