15. LAT to LMT Conversion

LAT (sundial time) was used prior to the late 1700s. Geneva switched from LAT to LMT in 1780; London in 1792; Paris in 1816: Norway in 1834; Sweden in 1841; Switzerland in 1851.. (Arthur Blackwell). GMT was used for 95% of public clocks in Britain by 1855, even though GMT did not become the official legal time for all of Britain until January 1, 1880.
