Dewatered Niagara Falls

    Newer Older

    In 1969 the Army Corps of Engineers de-watered Niagara Falls in order to remove unsightly talus at the base of the Falls. These are photos of what the Falls looked like when they were de-watered. They are photographs I took of 35mm slides originally taken by my in-laws in 1969.
