San Francisco Sundial

San Francisco, California

United States of America





A little secret of San Francisco hidden within a quiet cul-de-sac in the Ingleside Terraces residential area. The gnomon is 28'4" long. As evidenced by the plaque at its base, it was dedicated on October 10, 1913, the same day as the "meeting of the waters" in the Panama Canal. How to tell time with the Ingleside Terraces sundial: Use the shadow to the left in the morning, to the right in the afternoon, and the center at noon.


Drive along Ocean Avenue until you reach Victoria (these streets meet where the Voice of Pentecost Church occupies the old El Rey Theatre). Go only one block along Victoria, turn right on Urbano, turn left on Borica, and right on Entrado.
