Gastown Steam-Clock
#About the Whistling Steam-Clock that Operates on Gas

One of the special things you will see in Vancouver is the only clock in the world that works on steam. Everyone goes to see the clock, which has an interesting whistle every 15 minutes.

The Gastown Steam-Clock has a special noise. This is a sort of whistle, that's different from the hourly bell that rings in these types of clocks.

The special clock was built in 1977 during renovations on the neighborhood. Actually, it was built here for better use the street pipe, that was used to heat buildings in the area. The clock was actually created to conceal the pipe, and stop homeless people from sleeping next to the hot pipe in the cold winter.

Since this is a popular tourist attraction, the steam mechanism was recreated here, with financial support from local businesses. Even though the invention is modern, the famous clock is part of the history of the neighborhood.

Either way, it looks impressive and unique because the steam is what operates the clock dials, and responsible for the whistling of the clock every 15 minutes.

The whistling steam-clock is located in the old neighborhood of Vancouver, Gastown, on the corner of Water Street and Cambie Street.

Harry Jerome Statue
#About the Statue of the Runner in Stanley Park

The Harry Jerome Statue is located on the shoreline of Stanley Park, it is a bronze statue at the height of 9 meters, and is an icon in the popular park.

This statue is full of movement and energy, where Harry Jerome is seen running, one of the great Canadian athletes.



#Who Was Harry Jerome

Harry Jerome was a track and field runner, of the greatest athletes in Canada, and the world. He is especially known as the second runner in history to set the time of 10.0 for the 100-meter sprint, and his title for this record held for almost a decade.

Already as a child, he excelled in baseball, soccer, and hockey, and was discovered to have impressive athletic abilities. His way as a great athlete began at the age of 18. While still in high school, Jerome broke the Canadian record for the 220-meter run, a record that was not broken for 31 years!

Vancouver Olympic Cauldron
#About the Winter Olympic Torch in Vancouver

The official Vancouver Olympic Cauldron is still in the city today. Since the winter games in 2010 the flame has burnt, except for special occasions. It is an impressive view, and is a symbol of the city and a popular photo spot for tourists.

At the spectacular opening ceremony of the torch relay at the Vancouver Winter Olympics, one of the most impressive and beautiful Olympic cauldrons in the history of the Olympic Games was revealed. The Olympic torch relay to Vancouver was the longest of its kind by then and encompassed about 45,000 km.

The way of the torch started after it is lit, like the tradition from the ancient Greek city of Olympia. It made its way to Vancouver through 12,000 different Candian who carried it, one after the other. At the end of the trip, which took 106 days and even went through the North pole in Northern Canada, the torch arrived and lit the Cauldron. The lighting of the torch ceremony is the height of the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.

This is how this statue became the official cauldron of the winter Olympic Games in the city.



#What Does the Olympic Torch Carrying Symbolize?

The carrying of the Olympic flame is one of the most associated symbols with the Olympics. Some think that in the ancient Olympics the same tradition was carried out, but it seems like that might not be the case.

There are contradictions on whether the tradition of lighting the Olympic torch was born in ancient Greece, in the Olympic Games of those days. Many researchers claim that the torch was not part of the games, and only something from religious ceremonies for Zeus that took place at the same time as the games, and actually all the games were dedicated to.

The torch stayed lit back then in the temple of Zeus, for the entirety of the Olympic Games. Back in those days the flame was the central symbol in many cultures, as well as Greek culture, and was a reminder of Prometheus who stole fire from the god Zeus according to Greek mythology, and gave it to humanity.

It is interesting to know that despite its importance in the ancient Olympics, the lighting of the Olympic torch was forgotten after the Olympic games in ancient Greece were interrupted by the Roman emperor. Even after the start of the modern Olympics, the Olympic torch did not get anywhere.

Only in 1928, at the Amsterdam Olympics, 1535 years after the Olympics were stopped, was the Olympic flame tradition returned. In the Berlin Nazi Olympics in 1936, the tradition of carrying the flame to the cauldron in the opening ceremony started. Since then, even though the tradition began in a Nazi ceremony to heighten the Third Reich, the tradition carries on. The flame is lit in Greece, in the ancient city of Olympia, where the ancient Olympics once took place. From there, the flame is carried by many people, with everyone carrying the flame in their turn, until the flame is brought to the opening ceremony of the Olympics and lights the Olympics cauldron .
