Most people in the 1930’s dressed in their, “Sunday’s Best” when they visited Niagara Falls. This photograph was taken at the edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls at Table Rock House in the summer of 1932.The Clifton Hill Hotel, destroyed by fire in December of 1932, is seen in the distance on the upper left.

Note the American Falls and Smaller Bridal Veil Falls (separated by Luna Island) in the distance and the heavy volume of water that is going over these falls.

Today, during the summer season half the volume of water that could over the falls is diverted upriver to be used in the production of Hydro power.
