Notes  Reverse reads "The ruggedness and picturesqueness of nature about Niagara Falls has been seriously modified by the arts of man, the latest invasion being the construction of a Trolley Line through the Gorge, starting at Prospect Park and passing close to Whirlpool Rapids and the River, until it reaches Queenstown [sic] Queenston Heights. The ride is one of the sensations of pleasure and surprise, which sometimes approaches trepidation, as towering rocks, looming threateningly over the tracks cut through bluffs, produce a feeling of insecurity" ;
