Nice with the reflection of the steam clock.
Hope to visit there once more but don't yet know when.

Used to live at 310 Water St in the early 70's just across from the clock. Nice area back then and still brings back some good memories.If I remember correctly it took awhile after the clock was put in for the steam function to work as intended.

Thanks Wayne for your input. Good point about the costs of workshops vs. a new lens. This shot is great...tons of detail in your image.

It looks like a very nice and cosy place.
Not too formal, but good quality food and wine
.I will have to remember this place, just in case...

V. next to the mountains and water it's arguably Vancouver's greatest tourist attraction. Not really, but it attracts untold thousands of tourists every year.

It was designed. 35 years ago, to run on steam but as I understand it they never got it to keep the correct time. At some point they installed an electric motor to operate the clock. It does however use steam to sound the whistles on the hour, half and quarter hours. The steam comes from central heating lines under the street.
