Great to see you and Wayne both keeping Vancouver in the CDPB linelight.

I've just been revisiting some of my old posts from 2 years ago. In one http://hydedailyphoto.blogspot.com/2006/08/town-hall-clock.html I had a link to the "steam clock" in Vancouver. Alas the archives to the old Vancouver Daily Photo have been killed. If you know the clock I mean, maybe you could feature it here sometime.
