When Niagara Falls froze – circa 1909

Niagara Falls Freezes 1909

This photograph was developed from glass plate negatives.  It was taken in 1909 when the American Falls of Niagara Falls froze.  A few brave souls actually walked across the frozen falls.  Note the old camera in the picture.

A bit of information: On six reported occasions (1883, 1896, 1904, 1909, 1936 and 1947), the water flow over American Falls has been totally blocked by ice and ceased to fall.  ~ Source: The Weather Almanach
