Shining the light on Niagara
From the St Catharines Standard:
For 54 years, Peter Gordon played to an audience of millions.
The Niagara Falls resident estimates thousands of people a night – between 90,000 to 150,000 on a summer night – have been entertained by his rainbow of lights on both the Horseshoe and American Falls.
“It made you feel kind of powerful some days to see all those people out there and they’re looking at my work,” the 83-year-old said.
On April 30, Gordon spent his last shift as a lights operator at the Niagara Falls Illumination building.
“It was time to go,” he said with a smile.
