Ice at Niagara Falls Vintage Postcard

This vintage postcard is dated September 1, 1906 and shows the ice mounds that form at the base of Niagara Falls.

We see a crowd watching as people climb the ice to the top and then slide down. This looks to be a fun winter sport for visitors to the Falls.

The tourist shop to the left shows that the incline up to the viewers platform is completely frozen over. It’s a cold and blustery winter day, but not for these Victorian enthusiasts.
