(Thumbnail) Entrance to the Whirlpool and Whirlpool Rapids (image/jpeg)
Title Entrance to the Whirlpool and Whirlpool Rapids
Creator  Seibel, George A.
Notes  The entrance to the Whirlpool is at its minimum water flow from November 1 to March 31 each year as a result of water diversion for harnessing electric power. The effect of the underwater reef, holding back the water in the Eddy basin, can be seen in the smooth "two-stage" drop as the water flows into the Whirlpool. This photo taken onboard the Aero car.
Date  November, 1987.

Creator  Unknown
Type  Still Image
Collection  General Photograph Collection
Notes  A thirty-seven foot long air inflated rubber and nylon raft belonging to Niagara Gorge River Trips Inc. (owned by George Butterfield of Toronto) carrying twenty-seven tourist and two pilots capsized in the Whirlpool Rapids throwing everyone into the wild churning white water. Three passengers died from drowning. Twenty-six survived this ordeal. The accident occurred during the 11th trial run of this raft tour through the Niagara River rapids. The raft had departed from the Maid of the Mist dock at the base of the Prospect Point Tower and was about two mile downstream of a five mile route to Lewiston, New York. The three dead persons were identified as: Julia Martinez, age 30 of Toronto; David Ross, age 37 of Toronto and Anthony Sawczyk, age 24 of Niagara Falls, New York. Three of the survivors were admitted to the Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center with serious injuries. Each of the passengers had paid fee of $20 for this journey. The youngest passenger was 16 years old and the oldest was 52 years old. Four of the passengers were women. To further add to this tragedy, one man, piloting a 22 foot - 250 horsepower jet boat died of a heart attack while attempting to recover this raft from the Whirlpool

Creator  Bailey, George
Notes  On the 9th of September 1990 Peter Debernardi along with Wayne J Harris attempted to hang a Canadian flag from one of the Spanish AeroCar's cables, some 200 feet above the Whirlpool Rapids. He attached himself to the cable by means of a harness and pulley. He then planned to roll himself out to the midpoint of the cable, attach the flag, and then expected to be rescued by the cable car. He attempted the stunt in order to protest the Niagara Parks Commission which prohibits stunting in and around the Falls ; From the personal collection of George Bailey ; <B>Image may not be reproduced without the written permission of George Bailey;
