This is a picture of the world's former largest thermometer. Although the scale on the side of the thermometer measures in degrees Fahrenheit, the bottom of the thermometer gives the temperature digitally in degrees Celsius. It looks as though 22 degrees Celsius is approximately equal to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
