On a street corner of this Victorian-era warehouse district stands the world's first steam clock, and probably the city's most photographed attraction. The timepiece plays the Westminster Chimes every hour and whistles every fifteen minutes with a gush of steam. Despite its Gothic style, it's not as old as it looks. Famed inventor and horologist Ray Saunders built the clock to muffle steam from underground lines that were used to hean local buildings. This touristy place also serves as a great shopping destination; some of the collections include antiques, boxed teas, jars of maple syrups, clothes, household items, bags, and lots more.
