About This Project

This project is a celebration of Canada's 150th and a collaboration of information on Niagara Falls and the surrounding area.

This has continued on as an extension of the initial project to document and share the history of Niagara Falls.

The Library gratefully acknowledges the work of City Historian Sherman Zavitz. Many of the descriptions of these photos were adapted from his Niagara Falls Review column Niagara - Then and Now.

This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between Niagara Falls Public Library, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.
