Statue of John "Gassy Jack" Deighton, located in the Gastown District, where Vancouver was born. Gastown started with only one lumber mill in the wildnerness. In September 1867, Deighton showed up onshore with a barrel of whiskey, promising the millworkers he'd serve them drinks if they'd build him a saloon. The saloon was up in a day, and Deighton kept his word. Gassy Jack is considered the founder of Vancouver.
