In Victorian times a cable over 4,000 feet long hung in the air over Edinburgh's Waverley Station. The cable connected the master clock at Calton Hill observatory to the clock next to Edinburgh Castle's One o'clock Gun. This book tells the story of the scientific genius who set up Edinburgh's famous time gun.
