Niagara Falls without the 'falls' - Yes, it's true. This is a remarkable photograph. This was all made possible in the summer of 1969 when the water flowing over the falls went missing. It actually was re-routed via a cofferdam which effectively turned off the falls so that engineers could clear debris and do scientific/geological work.

Niagara river was diverted from Niagara Falls for the first time in 12,000 years to perform maintenance, 1969. Rare Historical photos With Info - MMA Forum
Perhaps one of the most difficult places in North America to collect thrown coins is at the base of Niagra Falls. This was all made possible in the summer of 1969 when the water flowing over the falls went missing. It actually was re-routed via a cofferdam which effectively turned off the falls so that engineers could clear debris and do scientific/geological work.
Historical moment: In order to stop the Niagara River running over the American Falls, engineers constructed a dam consisting of 27,800 tons of rock, stopping the water for the first time in 12,000 years

Rasputin accrued so much power that he weakened the throne. Nor did he give up easily. On Dec 31, 1916, foes fed him poison, then shot him - repeatedly. He was still alive when the dumped him in the Neva River to drown.

Victorian Headless Portraits The Victorian era had many photographs, most of which showed the subject sitting or standing with a stern expression. Since photography was still in its infancy, photographers were experimenting with novel ways to create fun photos that differed from the norm. Animals acting human was one popular concept, and then came the headless portrait. Funny, strange and entertaining, a new genre of photography was born.

“Friends, I shall ask you to be as quiet as possible. I don’t know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot; but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose,” October 14th, 1912 - Theodore Roosevelt was shot in the chest by John Schrank. Ole T.R. still finished his speech. This is why this man is my idol, role model, and hero.
