Horsehoe Falls Vintage Niagara Falls Postcard

This 1910 vintage postcard view of the Horseshoe Falls from Goat Island at Niagara Falls is quite beautiful. The postcard has been printed from a painting of the falls with lovely colors in the spray and background.

The Horseshoe Falls, so named for their shape being that of a horseshoe, are the largest of the falls at Niagara. Two-thirds of these falls are within the Canadian border, while the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls are within the border of the United States.

The Horseshoe Falls have long been an attraction for tourists from round the world. Created from the force of the water pouring over the precipice, the falls continually have a mist at the bottom, that reflect color from sunlight and floodlights at night.

This old postcard, or rather the painting it originates from, has captured some of those colors seen in the mist and spray of the falls.
