Niagara Falls - 1911
Niagara Falls 1911: interesting photos
In Laura Ingels-Wilder's series of books "The Little House on the Prairie" she described living through this 1911 freeze in Nebraska . One of her many fascinating stories gave a true historical background of an American family in "the good old days". Her writings rival Mark Twain.
Her mother had a cousin living in Niagara Falls that year. She told the family
that she and her neighbors woke up in the night feeling something was wrong.
It took a while but they finally realized that it was the lack of noise. They had
all become so used to the roar of the falls that the silence was unusual enough
to alert their senses. Of course at that time nearly all the houses were near the
falls. Amazing pictures! Almost 100 years old. Can you imagine walking on
1911 Photos of Niagara Falls ..
