“The Thundering Water”

From the start, Niagara has been over publicized, but somehow its authentic majesty has survived

Right from the beginning Niagara Falls has been the big showpiece. Once the United States had begun, visitors who wanted to see what the country was like went to Niagara first of all, and probably they were quite right. This stupendous cataract is beautiful, romantic, overpowering, and somehow rather frightening; it can charm you and it can also kill you, and if its filmy mists are enchanting, the violence that makes the mists is something to think twice about.
