Description - Niagara Falls, Volume 2 by Daniel M Dumych

This book portrays Niagara Falls as it once was between the mid-1800s to the late 1960s. Once a small tourist town, a great industrial city was built based upon the very thing that first attractedvisitors; the Falls became a revolutionary source ofhydroelectricity. After World War II, however, thecity s industries gradually declined and, one by one, relocated to other parts of the United States. The late 1950s and 1960s show a paradoxical time for the city. An immense new power station was constructed immediately north of the city, while urban renewal methodically destroyed the city s beloved, albeit by then grossly neglected, Falls Street business district, leaving behind a confused patchwork of vacant lots."
