    Thank you for the proper name, although even with that I still can't
    remember what we called it.  The depth of knowledge in this forum is
    inspirational.  With "Stokes" added to the search, I checked for images,
    and found "A national network of Campbell-Stokes sunshine recorders is
    comprised of selected meteorological observing sites with several located
    in the Atlantic Provinces." listed on an Environment Canada government web
    I'm sure there was a protective cage, or some other way to keep birds off,
    but I do seem to remember a lock and chain on the apparatus itself.

    Good Lord!  I had no idea they were so expensive.
