Standard time was adopted in the late 19th century to end the confusion caused by the use of local times in different parts of the country. The need for standardisation was made all the more necessary by the development of the railway network and the consequent need for railway timetables. This advertisement features many clock faces showing the differences between Greenwich Mean Time and local time in all the principal towns of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland and throughout the world.
