You know, from your number, you probably live near Gastown.
- Peter
It's in Gastown.

Typical Gastown street scene with the famous Steam Clock steaming and chiming in the foreground.  Restored nineteenth century buildings containing souvenir shops and restaurants line the streets.


Further down the main Gastown street, Water Street, we find the statue that commemorates the founder of Gastown, businessman John "Gassy Jack" Deighton, thus nicknamed because he talked a lot.  At the time he developed this area in the 1860s, the waterline of the Burrard Inlet was at Water Street (giving the street its name) rather than beyond the railway line as it is today.


Looking back down Water Street towards downtown.  The Gassy Jack statue is located just out of the photo at the top left.


Thin building at the corner of Alexander (left) and Powell (right) Streets.  The shop on the bottom floor sells posters.  Frank drives past this place during his chapter 2 Encounter.  Further up Alexander Street lies the Alibi Room and further up Powell Street lies Sunrise Market.


A little to the left of the thin building, on the same side of Alexander Street, lies the Jewel of India restaurant, also passed by Frank during his chapter 2 Encounter.
