Description  from a stereo image in the Earl W. Brydges Public Library Niagara Falls N.Y.
Notes  An idea of what took place on the ice bridge can be found in the following which appeared in The Drummondville Recorder of February 24 1888. Last Sunday was a gala day on the ice bridge. The visitors to the ice bridge amused themselves all day either watching toboggans go coasting down the ice mound at Prospect Point Corner or in trying the fun themselves. What laughing and yelling as some of the unlucky sports came to grief. The seven shanties on the ice bridge were doing a good business in liquor, photographs and curiousities, all day long. The police were on the watch for a gang of gamblers but the ligh-fingered gentry scented danger and took a back seat somewhere. Niagara Falls Canada : A History, page 354
