Niagara Falls, a US and Canadian jewel

2 Comments

From the Stillwater New Press:

Spectacular Niagra Falls is a case study on international cooperation and agreement between two nations.

Of course, those two countries are Canada, and our good ol’ U.S. of A.

As the mighty Niagra River flows from the Great Lakes of Erie to Ontario, the incredible falls are created. The title Niagra Falls is actually a collective name for three separate waterfalls in the same general area. American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls are both located in New York state on the U.S. side, while massive Horseshoe Falls is located almost entirely in the Canadian province of Ontario. Even with two huge countries involved, both governments have interacted with each other on excellent terms over many, many years, and there is no reason to believe this mutual cooperation will not continue well into the future.

“Canada: A Symphony in Color” book

No Comments

Whenever I go into a second-hand store like Goodwill or Value Village, I check out the book section to see if there are any books that mention Niagara Falls. There is a place called Renewed Thrift & Vintage in Welland, Ontario that I was in recently. There were several older books that I thought I would post about.

This book is called Canada A Symphony in Color (ISBN 0862834287). The book is over 30 years old, as you can tell by the photos. There were several photos of Niagara Falls, but not really any specific information about the falls.
