Gastown Steam Clock
Gastown and it's famous Steam Clock. One may think that this clock was build before electricity was available to power it .. mot quite right . It looks that way but this clock was actually build in 1977. Still mayor attraction of our “Old City” Gastown. Every quarter it whistles a melody and on the hour whistles some more .

In May 1873, the Parliament of Canada established a central police force. One hundred and fifty recruits were sent west to Manitoba. The new police force gradually acquired the name North-West Mounted Police (NWMP). In July 1874, the 275 mounted police officers marched west, headed for southern Alberta, where American whisky traders were operating among the Aboriginal people.
