          A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
          stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
          being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
          plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
          the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
          history a more lively presence here than anywhere
          else. Having been originally founded around a popular
