Few cities in Ontario have such a storied past as Niagara Falls, not only because of the cataracts themselves, but due to the city’s location on the border with the United States. When battles and animosity finally stopped between these neighbours, events, festivals and people freely celebrated the good times.
Sherman Zavitz who is the official historian for both Niagara Falls, Canada, and The Niagara Parks
Commission, presents 45 vignettes about the city, from the late 18th century to the middles of the 20th century.
These intriguing stories first appeared in the Niagara Falls Review, as part of a weekly heritage feature.
The lives of many individuals are deservedly chronicled in this wonderful collection. Names such as
Blondin, Farini, William “Red” Hill, Sir Harry Oakes, Claire Shuttleworth and many more have in some way put their stamp on this city. Mr. Zavitz has done a masterful job in telling and interpreting this most fascinating community’s colourful past.
