Pictured is the famous steam clock of Gastown in Vancouver, B.C, Canada. Gastown was the city’s first downtown core, named after seaman “Gassy” Jack Deighton and is now a National Historic Site of Canada. Today, Gastown attracts tourists and residents alike to its cobblestone streets for dining, shopping, business, galleries, and more. It also hosts the Vancouver International Jazz Festival and the Tour de Gastown international bicycle race each year.
