80-year old video of Niagara Falls

    1 Comment

    I first saw this video mentioned in the Americana twitter feed

    Niagara Falls 1937 video~ much of the water now flows behind the scenes creating electricity for much of the region.

    It links to a YouTube video with the following description:

    A home movie that my grandparents made of their trip to Detroit and Niagara Falls in 1937. It’s 8 mm and video only. Has degraded a bit over the decades, but still fun to watch, I think.

    The Niagara Falls portion of the video starts about 40 seconds in

    I love the Journey Behind the Falls poncho! It was also neat seeing the old Spanish Aero Car

    1. Thanks for sharing my grandparents’ video. I’m glad people enjoy the historic views as much as I do. Also, thanks for identifying the Spanish Aero Car for me. I had no idea what it was.
