Riassunto: The photographs presented here contain views of the city of Niagara Falls and trace the community’s roots in the villages of Suspension Bridge, Niagara Falls, and LaSalle. The author has brought together over two hundred vintage images from the area’s bustling and vibrant past, documenting life as it was in the 1860s to the mid-1960s. Many different faces of Niagara are depicted in this rare glimpse of the past. Residents and tourists alike will enjoy viewing the never-beforepublished images gracing the pages of this volume. Images of industry, tourism, the development of hydroelectric power, business districts, streets, homes, and even daredevils all appear in this excellent collection of images. Here we find the story of the Love Canal’s origins in the 1890s, when this project’s ultimate goal was to create an almost utopian city. Also included are several photographs of President William McKinley in Niagara Falls, only hours before his assassination. Other famous visitors mentioned include: Theodore Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Lord Kelvin, Abraham
Lincoln, Nikola Tesla, the Prince of Wales, Mikhail Gorbachev, Thomas Edison, Princess Diana, George Westinghouse, and John F. Kennedy.
