Victorian Time in Vancouver

Only a handful of steam clocks exist around the world and Vancouver is lucky to have one of them displayed in Gastown on the corner of Cambie and Water Streets. The Victorian style clock fits right into this area which is the epicenter that Vancouver grew from starting in 1870.

This particular steam clock is also notable for being one of the first clocks powered by steam. Built by Raymond Saunders in 1977, the steam clock combines 19th-century style with modern ingenuity. The steam engine acts as a winder for the clock and every 15 minutes the clock puts on a show by shooting steam from five whistles.
