No, I never seen these pics or heard the story before. I've been to Niagara Falls (both sides) and for this to actually happen is truly amazing!!

I believe I took those pictures Wouter.  Supertool's post says 1911 - sounds about right if I recall correctly.

p.s.  the Falls would never have frozen over normally.  The flow was greatly reduced because of water diversion for the new hydroelectric plant.

I went a couple of years ago and, while not completely frozen... water was still flowing quite rapidly... there was a layer of ice under the flow.  Pretty magnificent with the lights they had set up... green, red, blue, violet, pure white... pretty awesome.  My daughter loved the Falls and wants to go back.  Very nice, friendly, area.  Hotel staff where we stayed was the best I have encountered in a long time...

Love shredded wheat...
How long was it below freezing at the falls?  Seems as though it would take a while to freeze like that... Being from Texas, I don't know much about freezing...Wink
