Photographer's Note

Thought I would show another photo from the Gastown district.

Gastown is the birthplace of Vancouver, it was the very first settlement. And why the strange name? because Gassy Jack Deighton, who was a Steamboat Captain opened the very first Saloon here in 1867.

With this first Saloon opened by Gassy Jack, the town grew quickly with crews and captains from sailing ships, loggers, and fishermen. A sawmill soon opened up and the city bloomed with this rough and tumble crowd. Water street was the hub and epicenter.

This photo was taken at the top of the Harbour Centre, about 350 feet up. Lots of great views from up here.

Hope you enjoy it.
