Fahrenheit Monument

  ul. Mieszczańska, Gdańsk ,   Old Town         25 Nov 2019
An important name and instrument in science! Daniel Fahrenheit (1686 – 1736), the physicist and inventor, was born just a block away from this recreation of his 'Mercury in Glass' thermometer and barometer. Though he was the first to invent the mercury thermometer in 1714, this particular example, as the plaque below notes, was modelled on his improved model from 1752.
