    Re: Harbor Markers

    I wonder if it just means "harbour marks" especially the navigation marks at the entrance to a harbour as one would pass close to them and their position would be listed in Admiralty  List of Lights and Fog Signals.

    Thanks Brad.  I was going blind re-reading old books ( PDF ) to see if there was something new the old folk knew.  After my question to you I realized that a time ball would need a telegraph link to an obestorvory - a London or New York.

    The harbor markers seem to me to have been used a smaller, remote harbors but like you, I can not find any use of the name " Harbor Marker". Most likely was the surveyor's  monuments used to make harbor and coastal charts.  I wounder what the OS in Britian called their monuments?
