Going Public 2

We also stopped to admire The York, which points out that the pub is located 0 degrees 6 minutes 19 seconds west of Greenwich Meantime – an amusing reference to the Meantime Brewing Company, which is located in Greenwich.

Of course, those minutes and seconds don’t refer to a time difference. They are measures of longitude. The pub is located 6 minutes 19 seconds west of the Greenwich Meridian. That corresponds to a local time difference of about 25 seconds.
