Rural landscapes: soaring over the gorge
WHIRLPOOL AERO CAR, NIAGARA FALLS, ONTARIO
Niagara Parks website: “Designed by renowned Spanish engineer Leonardo Torres Quevedo, the Whirlpool Aero Car has been soaring over the Niagara Gorge since 1916. The antique cable car is suspended from six sturdy cables and offers spectacular views of the swirling Niagara Whirlpool and the Class 6 whitewater rapids of the Niagara River.
“Although the Whirlpool Aero Car travels between two points on the Canadian shore, riders of this historic cable car actually cross the international border line between Ontario and New York State a total of four times each trip due to the way the river elbows.”
This photo goes back so far in time (2005), it was photographed on slide film, then transferred to CD several years later. I dug it out of the archives to give you a view of Niagara in winter.
