If you look through the glass panels on the side of the steam clock you will see how the steel balls are raised to the top of the clock under steam power and then they slowly fall to create the power to make the steam clock work.The Gastown Steam Clock in Vancouver, BC was built in 1977 by a man named Raymond Saunders who owns the Gastown Steam Clock Company. The outer casing of the clock is made of 1/4" thick cast bronze that weighs over 2,300 pounds. He based this creation around an 1875 design of clock and is one of Vancouver's most popular attractions in this historic neighborhood of Gastown, Vancouver. ... continue below the picture...
