From the Niagara Gazette:
Since Franciscan monk and explorer Louis Hennepin became the first European to encounter the “Falls at Niagara” in 1658 we could call him the first “tourist,” but let’s start in the early 19th century. We will begin around the time of the construction of the Erie Canal on July 4, 1817 in Rome, New York, which opened the door to travel (and commerce) across the state of New York. Read More…
Here is another book I saw at Renewed Thrift & Vintage in Welland, Ontario (see here, here and here for the other postings). It’s called Canadian Book of the Road Read More…
Here is another book I saw at Renewed Thrift & Vintage in Welland, Ontario (see here and here for the other postings). It’s called Canada Land of Many Dreams (ISBN 0862830842) by Robyn Johl. There were several nice photos and this paragraph:
One of the most awe inspiring sights in Canada is that of hundreds of gallons of water cascading over the 150 foot drop at Niagara Falls. The first man to write of the Falls was Jean-Louis Hennepin in 1678, who called them a “prodigious cadence of water.” Since 1800 honeymooners and holidaymakers alike have flocked to see the falls in their thousands to view the great beauty and grandeur of this natural wonder.
Here is another book I saw at Renewed Thrift & Vintage in Welland, Ontario (see here for the other posting). It’s called Canada in Pictures (ISBN 0822546795) by Eric Braun. There wasn’t much information about Niagara Falls, other than this two-page photo.
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.
