This was sent to me via email so I do not know the scource. Never the less, they are amazing pictures, which should be shared.


Niagara Falls 101 years ago

Her mother had a cousin living in Niagara Falls that year.
She told the family that she and her neighbors woke up in the night feeling something was wrong.
It took a while but they finally realized that it was the lack of noise.
They had all become so used to the roar of the falls that the silence was unusual enough to alert their senses.
Of course at that time nearly all the houses were near the falls.
Amazing pictures .Almost 102 years old.
Can you imagine walking on Niagara Falls ?

That first pic must have been taken on a top of the range camera back in the day. Looks amazing even today!
