Venture into our city's most gruesome history - when Vancouver was a frontier town of hustlers and thieves, vagabonds and bawdy girls. You will hear stories of: Vancouver's first madam, who built a glamorous Gastown bawdy house before the city even had a school; a long-forgotten plague that clutched the city in its feverish grasp; the terror of the fire that ate-up Gastown in minutes and sent people sprinting for their lives down Water Street; a Klondike Gold Rush beauty, who had her heart broken - and her pocketbook looted - by a ruthless theatre magnate; and, the city's oldest unsolved murder - the death of prospector John Bray.

The tour ventures through Gastown, where many of Vancouver's most historic buildings are located.
