Closing Niagara Falls in 1969 - This Card is for International Postcard Week

International Postcard Week
October 5 - 11, 2014

This postcard feats the artwork of Rick Geary and shows the Canadian and the USA side of the Niagara Falls.  The US side was turned off in 1969.

The back of the card reads:
For six months in 1969 Niagara's American Falls were turned off by the Army Corps of Engineers.  Part of that time workers cleaned the former river-bottom of unwanted mosses, drilled test-cores in search of instabilities and a temporary walkway was built twenty feet from the edge of the dry falls.  Tourists were able to explore the landscape.

This card is postmarked in 2014 with a USA Hummingbird stamp.

The sender of this card is Demaris.  She is the person who organizes National Postcard Week. If you would like more information on that the web site is: www.NationalPostcardWeek.com
