    So I pulled this brass thermometer plate from my front yard just now and was surprised to see that it goes from -30 to 270 degrees. That’s quite a spectrum! But then I noticed the etchings on the temps: 32 Freezing; 62 churning; 86 for cheese; 150 scalding; and 212 water boiling.

    The top on the plate reads: “Successor to John Kendall: Chatham N.Y.”

    I couldn’t find anything about him online so it appears it’s just the owner’s name? Any thoughts?
