Gastown

 
 
                    Gastown is a refurbished part of the historic center
                    of Vancouver. In year 1867 John Deighton opened a
                    saloon for thirsty workers. Daughton became
                    well-known for his large talks and was henceforward
                    named as "Gassy Jack". So the area around the saloon
                    got famous as "Gassy's Town" or "Gastown".
                    Everywhere you can gaze at affectionately refurbished
                    houses of the Victorian period. In these brick buildings
                    are some souvenir shops located, restaurants, boutiques
                    and art gallerys. A funny attracton is the "Steam Clock"
                    at Cambie Street, which hoots every 15 minutes.
