stunning view of Niagara Falls (ON). Huge rocks below the American Falls,
often submerged, were dry and exposed; between Goat Island and Prospect
Park, the river, usually flowing at over 30 km/h, was still; the stream just
above Table Rock was a dry, solid bed of rock; and Horseshoe Falls had lost
2/3rds of its water and looked like an ordinary millpond.
