Perhaps one of Nanaimo's most recognizable names, the Jingle Pot areas are in fact rooted in the town's mining history. There's certainly more than one version of the local tales, most of which are linked to the sounds of a clanging bucket. For some it meant the miners bringing home pots filled with coin after a hard week at work, and others believe it was a message to bring the carts up, a ringing against a bucket shrill enough to serve as a signal.
