Unseen Photos of a Waterless Niagara Falls

Posted by David Ozanich — 21 Dec 2010


Ever wondered what Niagara Falls would look like without water? Wonder no more! In 1969, the US Army Corp of Engineers diverted water flow from the American side of the Falls in order to construct a dam. Now rare photos have been unearthed. Gizmodo has the story:

Last year, a man named Russ Glasson found a shoebox of 35mm slides of the Niagara Falls during that period that showed it as it had rarely been seen before: completely dry. The photos had been taken by his in-laws throughout the second half of 1969.
