Today is the last day in Vancouver. We went to gas town in the morning. Because we had to return the car today and at noon, the drivers drove off after we arrived at 9 o'clock and went straight to the airport - "where to rent it and where to return it. At gas town, we got off a little bit off the bus, a little away from the steam clock. So we have to walk two blocks to get there. There are better shops on the way. We only went into a hat shop and didn't buy anything. Reason - "Hats are needed, hats are not needed. Then it arrived at the steam clock, just in time for the whole time. It sounded great. To play with the steam clock, we went to n gift shops and bought each. I bought two lollipops, all maple candy. It looks delicious. After buying it, I went back to the hotel to eat yesterday's sushi and noodles, but this time the soup became salty. In the afternoon we all went to Stanley Park together. Before entering the park, I met with an event held by an automobile company to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of Canada. I could draw freely on the car, take pictures, and draw pictures on my body. Let's play for half an hour and then go into the park. Note - "I borrowed an advanced SLR camera from a parent, and immediately "Bird Gun for Gun". As soon as we got to the beach, we saw many seabirds. Everyone is holding their mobile phones, and the camera keeps taking pictures. I am the most dominant - "holding a heavy DSLR in my hand and clicking when I find it. After another walk, the bird disappeared. But the scenery is good. So... go on. Then go. Every time I got to a big beach and the other children had to play for a while, I sat down and drank water and took pictures. Then I went with a parent -- no, across the Lion Gate Bridge and found a spot to enter the park, and waited for the others. Everyone is here. Rest well and go into the park. Walk, walk, and finally walk out of the park, to the city, found - "the road has been closed, no mobile cars, only parked cars. So, "the car is not there, you can run rampant" - pedestrians. Of course, just walking. In addition, there are many performers who play guitar and Yo-Yo there. We have the same dinner as noon.
Gastown is Vancouver's oldest town, with cobblestone streets everywhere. This is the former slum site, which has been gradually renovated since the 1970s. Most of the old buildings are still there, but now they are mostly souvenir shops, popular restaurants and a growing number of fashion stores. Walking along Water St Street, you can see the landmark of Gastown, a steam clock that hisses and smokes.
If you want to see the historical buildings of Vancouver and feel the style of the city, you must go to Gastown. The historic alley is lined with bars, restaurants, cafes and souvenir shops, especially the antique buildings that give you a taste of Vancouver's past. The world's first steam clock driven by steam emits white smoke in the light rain, and has not been snubbed by the rain. They have taken pictures with the "old man" in memory. Deep in the square, there is a statue. Looking at the sign shows that he was the founder of Vancouver Gastown. Take time to take a group photo of this "historical celebrity" as a souvenir.
When you come to Gastown, don't be afraid of being fumigated by gas, because it doesn't produce gas. The name comes from a bar owner's nickname Gassy. All the streets of Gastown lead to Maple Tree Square, where stands the statue of Mr. Gas himself. Steam Clock, which weighs 2 tons, is the most famous scenic spot. It is powered by steam. Every 15 minutes, white steam comes out with Westminster bell music. Gaoler's Mews, built in the 18th century and rebuilt from Vancouver's first prison, is now an ancient and warm plaza. Blood Alley and Inuit Gallery are also famous attractions.
Walking through the narrow streets paved with red bricks and pebbles, the historical atmosphere of the 19th century came to us. It feels like a petty bourgeoisie. It's not too long to walk around and look at a nice old steam clock. Every fifteen minutes, it emits a whistle-like sound from the steam pipe. It's very distinctive.
Vancouver Gas Town, the northeast corner of the city centre, is the oldest District in Vancouver and the birthplace of Vancouver. The steam bell in Fig. 2 will whistle every fifteen minutes. Fig. 4 is said to be the narrowest tall building. The smell of the 19th century old city pervades the block. It is very suitable for traveling.
Vancouver's gas town was the first stop that the pioneers came here to explore, and it can be said to be the birthplace of Vancouver. The town is full of old-fashioned houses and statues of pioneers. The most famous one is the steam clock, which has been running for 300 years. It's really good.
