Black and White Image
image is taken from a postcard published in Nunda NY around 1905.
It is actually a much earlier view taken from Inspiration Point.
The Genesee River can be seen in the gorge in the center of the
photograph. It is flowing toward the camera and has passed under
seen in the distance, and then over the Upper and Middle Falls.
A small dam can be seen in the River just above the brink of
the falls. This was used to raise the river level for the mill
which is not visible.
The falls seen tumbling down from the canal was called "Bridal Veil Falls". It was manmade - not natural. It was designed to drain excess water off the canal.
