Description:
Black and white photo of American Falls, Goat Island and Prospect Point as seen from Canadian side. A skyline of Niagara Falls, NY visible in the background.
Notes:
There is a handwritten note indicating winter 1962-3 which is probably wrong. In 1954 a large rock fall occurred at the observation platform at Prospect Point and nearly 200,000 tons of rock fell down into the gorge. In the Fall of 1958, construction began on a 282 foot tall steel and glass observation tower at Prospect Point overlooking the American Falls. It was officially opened in February 1961 and is currently in service.
