Gassy Jack atop his Whiskey Barrel, Gastown

Image from Gassy Jack activity in Things to do in Gastown

Gassy Jack's legend is a popular tale in Gastown, appropriate since the 'Gassy' in John Deighton's name referred to the many story he regaled to his saloon customers on a nightly basis.

This statue memorialized both the man depicted, Capitan John "Gassy Jack" Deighton as well as the exact spot where Gastown was created when John Deighton went up the Fraser River with a few belongings and a giant barrel of Whiskey to build a saloon for the loggers in the area.
