In earlier times as, you descended the hill you saw an unspoiled natural view of the American Falls and the lower Niagara Gorge with no development on either side of the hill. Today the Skylon Tower is located on one side of the roadway and Fallsview Casino Resort on the other side.
However, one thing has not changed. The falls and gorge look the same as it did many years ago.
Above is an early morning photograph that I took from the top of the hill. I also have attached an early photograph (left) taken in the 1920’s from the same location.
