An Interesting Antique Thermometer on a Chicago Storefront (2019-02-18 14-07-46a)
The thermometer, which appears to be made of stone, was located between the doors to the stores at 6234 and 6236 North Broadway Avenue in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois.
Looking at it you would think that it is no longer functional, especially since the arm was bent. However, the temperature when I took the photo was 28°F so it was accurate. I don’t know if that’s a coincidence or not. Maybe the arm was bent on purpose to make it point to the correct temperature.
The photo was taken with a Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera. Editing was done with ACDSee Ultimate 2019. I straightened the image and corrected the perspective to preserve its square shape. Then I cropped it. Next I adjusted the white balance and the lighting and increased the contrast, clarity and saturation. Lastly I adjusted the levels.
