<font color=blue><b>GASTOWN</B></font> Apparently this place was pioneered by a guy nicknamed Gassy Jack (hhmm...that's all I have to say) who opened his saloon to the public. This is where you'll also find the only <font color=green><b>steam powered clock.</b></font> It was designed in 1875 and it will chime every hour. It's not that terribly exciting but the comfort of seeing some steam in the middle of a cold November day does draw your attention.</font></td></tr></table>
