Frozen Niagra Falls

Below are some pictures of a frozen Niagra falls, taken in the early 1900's. Pretty sweet.



I recieved these photos by e-mail, without much history behind them. I'm sorry I can't provide more info on them.

  1. In the second pic you show (of the lone person) - is that Darth Vader and his light saber?

  4. I'm really not sure what perspective the first picture is showing. The e-mail I recieved with these pictures didn't indicate.

  5. I'm from the falls and have an old book with these pictures and more in it. At one point they use to have winter carnivals at the bottom of the frozen falls. It's not a dam in the traditional sense it's more like a big gate that directs water through a canal to the reservoir. It allows them to send more water over the falls in the winter than would be usual to prevent the falls from freezing.

  6. This pictures prove Al Gore is greatest politicians in history. He stands above Ghandi, MLK, Nelson Mandela and even Jesus Christ.

    We must follow him and his science and never question!!!

  9. Great pics, but your year is incorrect. The water flow was stopped over both the American side & the "horseshoe" on the Canadian side of Niagra Falls on March 29, 1848. This was due to 'mini-icebergs' flowing downstream from Lake Erie which caused the flow upstream to clog. This is the only time it has happened in recorded history. The Falls did not actually freeze over, but for several hours the flow was stopped to the point where people could walk out on the riverbed.
