This book is a pictorial showcase of the interurban streetcar line - Great Gorge and International Railway - that ran along both the American and Canadian sides of the Niagara Gorge from Niagara Falls 1893-1935. Over 100 b&w photos and maps of this streetcar excursion line. Center inset is a color 2 1/2 page fold out panoramic view of Niagara Falls and gorge which was published in 1932. Photos include breathtaking views of the Falls and mighty gorge, historic trolley, bridge, and historic railroad buildings. Pictures include scenes just feet above the rapids-impossible to see by car or foot.
