The World's Only steam operated clock with steam whistles at the half hour and hour.. located on Water Street in Gastown, Vancouver, it's fun & seems to be a little off on when to blow the whistles. I think it needs an adjustment on Time.. there was a camera crew doing a television program at the clock.. they seemed to be taking more pictures of themselves than the clock.. Gastown is a very old region of downtown Vancouver, cobblestone, narrow streets, lots of shops and bistros..

We visited the Steam Clock on a rainy evening. I read that the clock really isn't steam powered as it has electric motors. It does however let off steam every hour and plays Westminster Quarters every 15 minutes.

Gastown is a lovely area to wander around. The steam clock is something everyone needs to see. Just because. It has been in movies and shows so most people can recognize it.

This clock fits right in with its surroundings. It stands a little taller than a person on the corner of the street. It was built in 1977 at the corner of Cambie and Water streets in Vancouver's Gastown neighborhood to cover a steam grate, part of Vancouver's distributed steam heating system, as a way to harness the steam and to prevent street people from sleeping on the spot in cold weather. It whistles to tell the time, the clock produces a puff of steam from its top on the hour.and is very quirky. Love it.
