• Ancient Roman numeral IIII instead of modern subtractive notation IV.

Peace Tower Clock

Newer Older

Peace Tower, Parliament buildings, Ottawa, Canada. Note the observation deck windows below the clock. The Roman numeral for 4 o'clock (IIII) is not in modern subtractive notation : IV, strange quirk which only applies to clocks according to WikiPedia.

    The observation deck has a glass roof so you can also see the clock : Ottawa Parliament West Clock.

    Here is a view from the observation deck at night:
