No trip to Vancouver is complete without a visit to Gastown's beloved steam clock. Its steam-powered whistles blow every quarter hour on the corner of Water and  Cambie Streets. And while it looks like a 19th-century antique, it was actually built in 1977 by horologist Robert Saunders as part of the revitalization of the neighbourhood.
