The last Steam Clock in the world and you should go check around in Gastown, many interesting stores nearby.
Built in 1977, this well-known, antique-style clock is powered by steam & whistles to tell the time.
Underneath Vancouver, Canada, there runs a series of steam pipes connected to a generating plant at Georgia and Beatty Streets. The system provides heat to most of the downtown core, and provides the steam for the whistles of the Gastown steam clock.
The Steam Clock in Historic Gastown is a famous landmark that goes off every 15 minutes, but emits a puff of steam at the top of the hour! Go down and check it out while you enjoy the sites in Gastown!
