brass monkey time

frozen falls in late 1800s

Toronto. On January 8th, the Insauga website had an interesting article by Don Redmond titled, “Can Niagara Falls ever fully freeze over?“. Ignore the many, many ads and instead read the words and see the photos.

We had a speaker at one point who also discussed the falls freezing over. And we learn from Mr Redmond that at a few times in past years, it did look like the falls froze, but underneath the ice, the water still flowed on its way to Lake Erie.

A thank you is due to my good friend and fellow photo enthusiast, George Dunbar, for discovering and sharing these photos.
