Alternate title:Niagara Falls from Canada by Illumination, Niagara Falls
Summary:A postcard featuring Niagara Falls illuminated at night from the Canadian side, circa 1930-1944. Caption reads: "Niagara Falls by Illumination / This new enhancement of America's beauty resources is nothing more than the Falls, under flood lighting for four hours each night. Their own power has been taken from then, brought under the control of man, and then turned back upon the power creator itself, and we get a new beauty, ten-fold greater than any beauty known at the Falls before man took hold to conquer them for service." Postcard number: 42009.
