This exhibition explores the eclectic visual history of Niagara Falls, centered on images and representations of the iconic site as an early, and widely-depicted, tourist destination. The works on display showcase various media – paintings, prints, etchings, guidebooks, and some early photography – spanning from the nineteenth century through to the early twentieth century.
