Enjoy these vintage photographs from a recently acquired collection belonging to Amy Wall. It is believed that all of the photographs in this collection were taken in Niagara Falls around one hundred years ago.

This is just a sampling of some beautiful ladies from Niagara’s past. The nurses are most likely from St. Mary’s Hospital. We don’t know their names. We are just left with timeless images captured in some photographs.
